Greenwood Workshop – Cleft Ash Hurdle Gates
Ingleton, North Yorkshire LA6 3AX
Starting with an ash log you will learn how to split it, then shape into rails and uprights using carving axes and drawknives. Mortise and tenon joints are used to assemble the hurdle which is then secured with hand made wooden pegs.
This course is taught by Phil Bradley, a regular tutor at Broadrake. He usually teaches willow weaving but ran this hurdle course very successfully in 2020.
Come as a pair – the price is for 2 people to make one hurdle gate.
