New craft courses are planned over the coming months at Orchard Barn near Battisford as the centre’s hand-made craft room takes shape.
As a tree and wood orientated enterprise it was decided to make a start with a Spoon Carving course on Saturday 10th March.
Much of the greenwood is sourced from Orchard Barn’s own orchard, so with apple pruning coming up the bigger pieces will be saved for carving. The smaller sticks are greatly enjoyed by one of volunteer’s pet rabbits and the rest are chomped up and converted into compost for the vegetable garden.
Upcycling, repurposing and recycling are central to everything that Orchard Barn does.
If you are interested in spoon carving, restorative orchard tree pruning or compost making have a look at their courses, by visiting their website.
