Make your own Sussex Trug in a Day

Date/Time Location Course facilitator
14 Aug 2022 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM The Trug Workshop, Magham Down Richard Bingham

This is an exciting opportunity to build your own Sussex trug in a one day workshop.

The true Sussex trug is a very durable design that with only a little care will last a lifetime. It is not to be confused with the cheap imitations sold in many outlets today! You will learn how to cut, shave and bend the wooden components and to finish with traditional copper tacks. All wood is grown and coppiced locally.

You will learn how to cut, shave and bend the wooden components and to finish with traditional copper tacks. All wood is grown and coppiced locally. To save time on the day the wood will already have been roughly prepared.

This workshop runs from 9 am to (nominally) 5 pm. In the words of our tutor Richard it runs from 9 am to “when we’re finished”. He likes to make sure everyone leaves with a completed trug.

Please bring your own food and drink. A kettle and drinking water is provided.

This workshop is not suitable for under 18s.
