The Field Notes course took 12 diverse creative practitioners with interests in wood as a material, and forests and woodlands as a place for learning and growing, through a two-week course; one week spent online, one week spent in person at the Sylva Foundation. The students’ creative outputs are pieces of work that now on display in the V&A’s Susan R Webster Furniture Gallery.
Grown in Britain certificate holders Logie Timber and the Blenheim Estate supported the course with donations of GiB elm, ash, and oak, amongst other timbers, and we thank them for their foresight and generosity. The GiB team spent a number of days with the students, members of the V&A team and the Sylva Foundation discussing sustainable forestry against the wonderful backdrop of the Earth Trust’s Paradise Wood; happy days!
