The art of hedge-laying is a centuries-old skill for creating living fences. Traditionally intended for keeping your livestock in the fields – a well laid hedge is also a thing of great beauty and a haven for wildlife.

On this hands-on one day course you’ll learn to use simple hand tools and master the basic techniques. From clearing the ground and preparing the materials, to pleaching, staking and finishing – you’ll work as part of a small group to lay a section of hedge here at the Museum.
