About the event

This weekend will take you through the unloading and loading of a ring kiln, locating kilns, wood selection and burning. This is a great introduction to the creation of sustainably sourced lump wood charcoal. It's great fun too! Come in clothes that you don't mind getting mucky and smelling of smoke! You'll also be able to take home some of the charcoal you've made.
