Shows

Shows, Demonstrations and Talks

useing a pole latheAs Wesnet Services Ltd. we have been demonstrating at shows throughout Hampshire for the past 15 years. Since 2012 we have been working under the heading of Three Copse Woodland Products as we feel it better reflects the work we are now doing.

We work as a team with one pole lathe turner, and one or two other demonstrators showing various aspects of green woodworking including making spatulas, butter spreaders, spoons, tent pegs, mallets and tool handles. We also take our Charcoal kiln to shows; although usually only set up to give an idea of how it works we sometimes light a small controlled fire to give smoke effects.

We also work closely with other local craftsmen including hurdle makers, broom, rake and shingle makers. At shows throughout Hampshire as part of Hampshire Coppice Craftsmens Group we have filled a 100ft stand demonstrating many of the old crafts.
