If you are interested in future yurt making courses, Will Southcote-Want will be at Halsway Manor during Halsway Fete. You can ask questions and see an example of one of his hand-built yurts, and register interest in future courses.

Will Southcote-Want started making yurts approximately 10 years ago. He is now an experienced craftsman with skills originally inherited and passed on from his father. Will has always had a leaning towards woodcraft and prior to his yurt making was employed as a designer and builder of log cabins, bespoke kitchens and a variety of other carpentry projects. As a former university lecturer and professional trainer he brings an array of teaching skills to the workshop, always maintaining a balance between traditional techniques and modern tools.

He is also a keen musician having performed around the world. He currently plays with the Cathy Judge Band who are based in Somerset.
