Making Shrink Boxes

  • Cost:  £90
  • Venue: The Northumberland Centre for Greenwood Craft at Kirkley Hall Farm

The craft of traditional green woodwork aspires to use the unique nature of freshly harvested wood to create utility items of beauty.

The shrink box is a perfect example of this craft.

Starting with a length of green, freshly felled log, traditional augers are used to bore down the grain then further hollowed with knives to create a wooden tube.

A seasoned piece of wood is then shaped and cunningly fitted to make a base which is held in place by the action of the body drying and shrinking.

Designs can be simple or elaborate with unlimited potential.

There has been a strong shrink box making tradition in Scandinavia and North America for centuries.

Tutor is Maurice Pyle, the north east's foremost traditional greenwood worker.
