Yesterday was spent at the annual Oak Fair; we went with friends, the weather was perfect - it was a lovely day. I always come back from there very inspired with a list as long as my arm of things I want to try. Some of the bigger projects carry over from year to year, but I'd like to think I'll get there one day!
So, the list looks like this:
Build and learn to use a pole lathe
Making hide boots
Learning more about fire starting
Making a stick from my own coppiced wood
More basket making, hedgerow baskets
Making more wooden knitting needles and crochet hooks
Wooden sculptures for the garden
Making a wooden bucket with rope handles
Highlight of the day was meeting Nick Gibbs, the Editor of the excellent Living Woods magazine, which I can't recommend highly enough.
