I want to move some files about in 'finder' and it would be helpful to have two occasions of Finder open at the same time.  Is this possible?

Open a window, then press COMMAND-N to open a second window. You can also open a window and navigate to one location. Then hold down the COMMAND key and double-click on a drive or folder icon to open a second window.

By default the Finder opens one window in which you do your organization and browsing; however, if needed you can manually open new Finder windows as Kappy and mende1 mentioned; however, if you would like each folder you open to be in a separate window then you can set this option in the Finder preferences. To do this, go to the "Finder" menu and choose Preferences, and then check the "Always open folders in a new window" option.

On menu bar, open File > New Finder window
