Come and spend a relaxing day making and creating in the woods. Set outside in a beautiful woodland workshop over-looking the river Findhorn on Logie Estate. You will learn a wide range of traditional "Green Woodworking" techniques. Using hand tools and locally sourced hardwood you will be guided through the process of making your very own Shrinkpot.
What is a Shrinkpot? - These wooden pots are the ultimate in pure greenwoodworking. The making process starts by hollowing out a green(fresh) log either from a small trunk or a large limb of a tree. A groove is then cut in the inside of the bottom of the pot and a dry hardwood base is fitted. The pot is then put aside to dry, as the wood dries it shrinks around the base creating a nice tight fit and your own lovely pot!
They are a joy to make!
You will come away with a beautifully practical pot, with lot's of uses. A few examples would be to store kitchen utensils, spoons, pens, herbs, jewellery etc.
