As Wesnet Services Ltd, we have been demonstrating at shows throughout Hampshire since 2004. from 2012 we started working under the brand name 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, besom brooms and leather items. We also take our charcoal kiln to shows; allowing us to show the process from start to finish.
We also work closely with other local craftsmen including hurdle, 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.
We also give talks to special interest groups on a range of subjects. These include:
- Management of ancient woodland
- Sustainable woodland management
- Charcoal burning
- Pole lathe turning (practical demonstration/talk)
If you run a group and would like more information about any of the subjects above feel free to contact us.
We charge around £50 plus expenses for a one-hour talk. As part of the package we provide a digital projector and screen, meaning we can set up anywhere with a mains electricity supply; from a village hall to a pub.
