About Woodcraft Wellbeing
Alistair and Chenma are a Father/Daughter team running Underwood Crafts
Alistair is an experienced woodworker and yurt maker, having ran a coppice crafts business based in Ashbourne for over 20 years. He specialises in traditional woodland crafts such as wattle hurdles, cleft fencing, and hedgelaying, and runs a variety of courses throughout the country as well as locally for organisations such as Derbyshire Eco Centre, The Wildlife Trust, and The National Trust. Spending most of the winter sourcing his materials in local coppice woodland, Alistair gets great satisfaction in seeing the tree from where it came, and using traditional and often ancient methods to transform it into a bespoke item.
Having had the great fortune to grow up watching and assisting Alistair, his daughter Chenma accompanies him whilst adding the additional element of wellness. Having been born and raised in Buddhist centres, she has a close relationship with mindfulness techniques and meditation, and together they aim to highlight the benefits of working with and within the natural environment around us, learning valuable traditional skills along the way.
This workshop is organised and run by Underwood Crafts.
