Build a Roundhouse in the Forest of Dean

Build a Roundhouse

in the Forest of Dean

A ten day hands-on workshop with Tony Wrench

August 19th- 31st 2012

Experience communal building and sustainable construction practices as we build a 5m diameter roundhouse with wood henge, reciprocal frame roof with turf cover and cobwood walls.

This project is to create an educational space in the woods for Forest Schools. The roundhouse will be used by Forest Tots, and the Dean Field Studies Centre at Parkend, a children’s activity centre. The project will use tree trunks felled at source, and recycled donated local materials.

Camp on-site in lovely surroundings in private grounds surrounded by woodland. Fabulous access by steam railway!

Course fees are set low - you will be doing plenty of physical work!

15 places available. Concessionary rates are available to the first 4 who volunteer to run the catering (buying & cooking). The course fee includes camping on site plus use of facilities at the centre: showers, common room, drying room, and kitchen.
Course: £150 including camping

Food: Suggested £6 a day (funds pooled)
Concessionary Caterers fee: £75 (4 places only)

Overnight accommodation is available at the centre for £95 for the duration of the course (must be booked in advance). Accommodation is also available at the Fountain Inn next to the site.
