Wild Wood Week
From the 6th to the 13th of September saw Assynt’s first Wild Wood Week come to the fore – with events on nearly every day, from wood carving to creative writing, fungi forays to a day put at the Little Assynt tree nursery, there was lots to see and do.
Some pictures from the two day bowl carving workshop of our carvers in action….
…and their finished results!
We also had a fungi foray in Culag Woods with Assynt ranger, Andy Summers. It was a great day for mushroom spotting, with over 30 species identified! One species spotted and snapped was this conifer mazegill –
Finally on the Saturday we had a woodland day at Glencanisp Lodge, there was lots to see and do, seeing the lighting of a charcoal kiln, watching wool dyeing, trying local produce, having a go at willow weaving and hurdle making, and at the end of the day enjoying a blazing bonfire, music and storytelling!
A good time was had by all – we hope to see you all again next year!
