About The Magic of Trees #3 (full price)

The third edition of the Magic of Trees!

This time bringing us deeper into the darker colder part of autumn with the trees now losing most of their leaves, starting to compost to feed the next season; time to reflect, to celebrate and honour our ancestors. 

We will give this time to appreciate the trees for their wood to keep us warm and their wood to get us crafting beautiful objects. 

We will be joined by a man of the woods, a master woodscraft person and carpenter Tom Trimmins (www.tomtrimmins.co.uk)

He will inspire us with his infectious knowledge of wood, lighting fires and an introduction to crafting with some knife techniques. 

Join us for a special day at the Tree Nursery exploring fire craft, including a demo and have a go at fire by friction with the bow drill, types of different wood and their uses, how they burn, have a go learning how to chop wood / make kindling correctly and safely using an axe/knife and end with sitting round a fire learning knife techniques for whittling green wood. Materials and tools provided

We will of course have some lovely homemade warm soup and tree treats, tree teas,  tree medicine to keep us nourished, as well as songs, poems and magic tree connections! 

Price of tickets covers expenses and all surplus proceeds are donated to the Tree Musketeers and the Hackney Tree Nursery who plant and care for the trees in Hackney.
