About the Event

Birchcraft dates back to the Stone Age. On this one day workshop, you'll learn all about the magnificent Birch. You'll tap the tree for sap, to make your own syrup. You'll learn how to peel birch bark, using it to make a container. And you'll find out how to make birch-bark tar, which can be used as a substitute for glue. As with all our workshops, you'll get to take home what you make.

Workshop programme You'll arrive in the woods by 10am, and be directed to our hand-built, greenwood shelter. From there, one of our experienced trainers will lead you through the workshop. All wood and tools are provided. The day finishes by 4pm.
