Lime Bark Harvesting workshop
Sat 17 June 2017, 10:00 – 16:00 BST
Discover the many uses of small-leaved lime trees. You will learn about the history of this unsung hero of our countryside and how it has been used to supply rope and basket-making material, as well as wood for shields and some of the most primitive of fire making methods. You will learn to debark the coppiced poles, make your own string as well as weave a simple matt.
