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…
Woodland Artisan Courses
This project aims to fulfil local demand for training courses utilising local timber and woodland resources to create products such as spoons, bowls, furniture, hazel hurdles, baskets and wild food products. Courses will be organised and run over the five years in conjunction with the local learning centre at various locations throughout Coigach and Assynt.
The aims of the project are to:
- Introduce the art of working with natural products to ensure that traditional crafts and skills are maintained and passed onto the next generation.
- Reconnect people with the land and uses of the natural products.
- Foster a desire to manage the land in order to increase local natural sources for future use.
