After 28 years of running Greenwood Courses in Clissett Wood Gudrun Leitz has now handed over her course programme to me. I am thankful to Gudrun for entrusting me with what she has established over many years of hard work, and also to the co-owners of Clissett Wood for continuing to host me as a guest tutor.
Clissett Wood is a ten acre woodland five miles north of Ledbury in the beautiful Herefordshire countryside. Nestled next to the Malvern Hills, this area is steeped in rural charm. Hop farms, orchards and timber framed farm houses scatter the countryside.
Clissett Wood is a co-operative owned woodland. Gudrun has been teaching courses from its purpose built workshop since 1995. With a mix of mature ash and oak with hazel and sweet chestnut coppice, Clissett Wood is a place of great beauty and tranquillity and a wonderful place to learn.
Camping pitches are available in the woods during courses for £6 per night. Alternatively there are a variety of B& B's and guest houses locally.
