Birch Bark

Birch bark is an amazing material to work with. Unfortunately the quality of bark in the UK is not good so I collect mine from either Canada or Lapland. I have used it to make some really nice baskets and knife sheaths. If you do not have Birch bark available, strips of cereal packets make a really good substitute.

  1. That is a good suggestion, especially if you are trying out something new, and want to go through some prototypes first.
