Using lime bark to create remarkable containers

On this special course, we will be looking at the fascinating process of turning coppiced bark into delightful containers. 

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 lime bark containers of various sizes.

During the day you will:

  • You will learn the art of making containers from lime bark
  • Use coppiced poles and specialist tools and techniques to remove the bark
  • Start small to learn and hone the skills – then go as big as you like
  • Make a base and lid for your containers – producing truly unique and useful containers.
