Event description

Description

Ben Law lives and works at Prickly Nut Wood in West Sussex, UK. The building of his house in the wood was filmed for Channel 4’s Grand Designs programme and was voted the most popular Grand Design ever by viewers.

Apart from making a living from coppicing, he trains apprentices and runs courses on sustainable woodland management, eco-building and permaculture design. Ben also runs a few ticketed open days each year, to experience Prickly Nut Wood and visit the Woodland House.

Ben specialises in Roundwood Timber Framing and has developed specialist jointing techniques for the architectural style of building he creates. These, he passes on through his flagship Roundwood Timber Framing course.

Ben is also a prolific author having written six books. His latest book ‘Woodland Craft’ is a practical construction book of traditional and modern woodland crafts. Translations of ‘Woodland craft’ are available in French and German.
