Welcome to the Hampshire Coppice Group website. The intention of this site is to promote the work of the group, as well as giving a voice to the people working in the woodlands of Hampshire.
The group was set up in 2003 with the aim of supporting the work of coppice, underwood and associated craftsmen in Hampshire, as well as raising awareness of the benefits and opportunities they provide for woodlands and their wildlife, the landscape, rural employment and sustainable development.
Group members take part in many demonstrations and shows throughout the year, demonstrating a wide range of traditional skills including hurdle, spar and walking stick making as well as pole lathe turning and charcoal burning. If you are a show organiser and are looking for something different at your show, please contact the group (using the contact page) with your details.
Since its inception HCCG has been actively promoting coppicing and associated crafts within Hampshire.
The Coppice Group is also a member of Hampshire Fare who promote local producers of food, drink and crafts based in Hampshire.
