Using lime bark to create containers, rope and string
On this special course, we will be looking at the fascinating process of turning coppiced bark into delightful containers, and the finest of ropes/strings.
Lime bark is a fascinating natural material. When the sap is at its highest, the bark can be removed from the wood with specialist tools and know-how. This then allows us to produce some quite unique products, including lime bark containers, rope and string.
