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.

The courses are held at the beautiful Footprint nr Windermere, in the Lake District.

The day will start at 9am and finish at 5pm.

Kettle always on the boil and unlimited biscuits! Bring your own lunch.

Slowing down and noticing isn't just good for my health - it also reveals opportunities I hadn't seen or even imagined.
