Ingleton Stargazing @ Broadrake
Mar 4 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Ingleton Stargazing @ Broadrake | Chapel-le-Dale | England | United Kingdom
As the nights draw in earlier, from October to March, the Ingleton Stargazer group meets monthly at Broadrake on either the 2nd or 1st Monday of each month, depending on the moon phases. There is a short talk with Pete Collins, (our local star photographer) which includes what to look out for through the next month, usually with a video and if its clear, getting outside & looking upwards to check out the starry sky. 
 
Broadrake is in a great dark sky area being away from the lights of Ingleton and the glow of far away cities and we can easily see the Milky Way – sometimes it’s so dark that it is a challenge to see the more familiar stars because of all the other stars that are visible.
 
Dates are: Nov 12th 2018, Dec 10th 2018, Jan 7th 2019, Feb 4th 2019 and March 4th 2019.
 
Wrap up warm! If you have them, bring binoculars, telescopes and cameras if you wish to have a go at night-time photography.
 
Tea, coffee, squash, biscuits are available, if you are lucky maybe some home baking. This is a free event and all are welcome.

Blacksmithing Workshop @ Broadrake
Mar 10 @ 10:00 am – 4:00 pm

Tutor Adrian Wood leads workshops in blacksmithing in many venues across the North of the country.
His courses are always very popular and fill up very quickly. He works on decorative blacksmithing commissions for many clients in his own forge at Hornby, Teeside when he’s not teaching others. 
You will need to wear layers of old clothing as it can be hot work and sensible shoes (not plastic). Safety glasses must be worn and these will be provided along with a thick apron. 4 mobile burners and 6 anvils are set up so everyone can work together.
Basic blacksmithing skills will be taught to create a selection of items from key rings, curved hooks, toasting forks, pokers, and dragon hooks.

Time: 9.45am until 4.30-5.00pm
Where: Broadrake, Chapel-le-Dale, Ingleton, LA6 3AX. SD 740792

Courses are 9.45am to 4.30pm approx. Price includes lunch and refreshments

Book with Broadrake: contact Rachel on 015242 41357; info@broadrake.co.uk

Tutor Phil Bradley lives in NW Cumbria where he grows his own sustainable willow for basket-making, garden structures and also bird sculptures, all popular workshop topics. He has created some amazing structures and sculptures at RHS Harlow Carr and also takes commissions. www.philbradley.net

Phil’s teaching style is relaxed and gentle, yet effective, so everyone achieves the necessary skills to complete the workshop task, be it a useful piece of willow weaving, basketry or merely decorative.

For 2019 Phil will be teaching Willow Curlews again, a popular course he introduced in 2016. It is planned for June when we hope our local curlews will still be around for us to hear their evocative call.

There are two other one day courses, Willow Hares in May and Willow Seed Pods (a new one for us) in July.

There are also a couple of 2 day basket making courses, one for willow frame baskets and the other English roundwork baskets.
