Weald & Downland Living Museum

Historic Life Weekend: Wood Crafts & Wood

Wood is an essential building material, for homes, furniture and much more.

During this weekend you can find out about the way it is worked into the different forms, with demonstrations from a range of craftspeople and displays. For example, discover which trees are used for which purposes? How is this resource managed to best use in the past and today? How do people learn these craft skills?

Father’s day is on Sunday, 16 June. So why not enjoy a day out at the Museum, where there will be plenty of things to see and do for Dads, Granddads and the whole family to enjoy.
