Woodland Artisan – Birch Bark Pots
Last weekend we ran a course on making birch bark pots with the fantastic Wooden Tom. It was a fantastic day, and everyone was pleased with their creations! Thank you all that came and Tom for his expert wood skills to guide us.
How were they made? The lid and base are made from a block of pine cut into two and carved. Birch bark is the curled around the base and nailed together. Pine roots are used to stitch the bark together and the handle is carved and attached to the top. Everyone could design theirs how they wanted, and the natural material added to everyone’s being individual.
The Woodland Artisan project has lots of opportunities to join courses such as this across the year. Keep an eye on our website or Facebook for the latest course updates.
