Working with Flax and Nettles

by WoodlandsTV ~ 20 June, 2017 ~ 6 comments

Here at Bentley Woodfair we see expert Allan Brown talking us through the various processes involved in preparing flax and nettles ready for hand spinning - from growing, cutting, drying and storing through to working the plant to reduce it to its most useful natural fibres. Allan uses traditional equipment, adopting specific techniques to best work the flax. We appreciate how, in times past, this would have had enormous production value - as flax and nettles were used to make all sorts of crucial items, from sails and bed sheets to clothes and cordage - and this skill still has its value today.

Starting a Forest Garden

by WoodlandsTV ~ 31 May, 2017 ~ 9 comments

Here Lisa Aitken and Charles Hooper describe how they have created a Forest Garden - an open woodland ecosystem using a range of trees, shrubs and plants for harvest. They share their joint passion for horticulture, self-sufficiency and their desire to work with the land to leave a lasting legacy. They talk us through the design process which includes seven layers of growth with the aim of cultivating the space available to increase biodiversity. Lisa and Charles point out the importance of understanding the condition of the soil, of growing plants for sun or shade in relevant areas, as well as the bonus of having accessible water on site - all with the reassurance that gardening knowledge will increase over time, just as the forest garden will grow and thrive, providing fruit, vegetables, nuts and more for years to come. http://www.forestgarden.info/ An Adliberate film http://www.adliberate.co.uk for WoodlandsTV http://www.woodlands.co.uk/tv

Stone Age Hunter Gatherers

by WoodlandsTV ~ 22 May, 2017 ~ 4 comments

Here historical expert Martin Patterson shares his vast knowledge of the Stone Age Hunter Gatherer period. His passion and skill is obvious as he shows us a range of replica tools and equipment he has fashioned from natural materials including a flint-headed axe, a scythe from deer antler, a fire-hardened digging stick and a range of spears for hunting - explaining how these would have been used and maintained in the Stone Age. Martin shows us needles from bone; how pine resin, soot and bees wax can make a sort of glue and how stinging nettle fibre would have been used like string to make trapping nets. He stresses the importance of looking after the natural environment - then and now - to encourage new growth and to ensure a regular harvest. http://www.handsonhistory.co.uk/.
