Scandinavian Shrink Pot Carving
Creating beautiful natural pots from greenwood, using the shrinkage of the tree as it dries out to create a sealed pot.
Working with the natural properties of green wood by hollowing out a section of branch. Carefully carving a base out of dried wood and using a technique so that as the greenwood dries it shrinks to fit the base. Traditionally carved in Eastern Europe and Scandinavia, this is an interesting introduction to green wood crafts.
"A really enjoyable day – very well paced. Superb friendly atmosphere making it a lovely way to learn. "
I just wanted to say how much I enjoyed the shrink pot carving course. Thank you to yourselves for organising and running the event. It was a well-paced course with plenty of clear instruction, in a lovely setting. I am so very happy with the final product and look forward to making some more down the line.
