Woodworks!

Woodworks The 10th annual Woodworks! festival is happening this weekend, 1st-2nd September.  The two days are full of wood craft, trees, machines, real ale, arena displays and fantastic folk and roots music.

The Forest of Marston Vale's festival of trees, wood and wood products is held each year in the Marston Vale Millennium Country Park at Marston Moretaine, Bedfordshire.

Woodworks! is a fun weekend packed with people doing amazing things, some with machines, others armed with nothing more than their hands and some wood. Have a go at willow weaving, pyrography, archery and much more. Find out how cart wheels are made, how a basket is woven, how a tree can become a beam or a spoon or a chair or a thatcher's spar.

All profits from Woodworks! and everything else that goes on at the Forest Centre are used to create the Forest of Marston Vale.
