Incredibly, 2020 is just around the corner and we're pleased to be able to say that next years courses are already on-line and available for booking. Our 1-3 day, largely weekend courses, make the most perfect, unsual and inspiring Christmas gift.
In 2019 we continued with our plan to concentrate on stocking the best and most useful of durable hand tools for greenwoodcraft and small scale forestry. During our annual tour of Sweden and Norway this year we didn't manage to secure any new and interesting products to add but we did meet up with some of our long standing contacts/old friends to catch up with what's new and what will be coming along during the next year. All will be revealed!
