Tuesday 2 October 2012

www.woodworkersinstitute.com

This event celebrates traditional rural wood crafts inspired by discoveries underwater at the 2,500 year-old site of Oakbank Crannog in Loch Tay and is part of the Perthshire Coppice Project. The project aims to regenerate and manage hazel coppice in Perthshire; to re-establish the use of hazel in structures, crafts and in charcoal-making; to create markets for hazel products; and to set up a network of like-minded enthusiasts.

There will be coppice work displays and activities plus demonstrations of green woodworking, walking stick making, basket making, hurdle making, birch bark tar production and bronze casting using local charcoal. Many items will be for sale and there will also be plenty of hands-on opportunities and the chance to speak to the many craftspeople in attendance.
