Last week was the final session for the summer and a jam packed one it was too!
We started off making charcoal
|Cutting willow to size|
Its very important to put a hole in the top of the tin so that the gas released from the wood can escape!
You leave the tin on the fire until the smoke and flames stop coming out of the hole in the lid, when this happens it is ready to take off the fire.
|The finished product|
Whilst all that was going on we had a bash at dying wool using common sorrel roots and meadowsweet
and then there was stick whittling in preparation for marshmallow toasting
and bread on a stick : )
Thanks everyone who came along and got involved...looking forward to the autumn adventure clubs!
