An Introduction to Felting

by WoodlandsTV ~ 9 December, 2019 ~ 3 comments

With Christmas coming up why not make a few of your presents instead of buying them! Over the next couple of weeks we will be uploading a series of easy DIY films to give you some ideas!

Woodlands.co.uk sent a couple of our film makers to the Wilderness Gathering to learn about the different crafts going in the world of woodlands. Here Amanda Critchlow, a professional felter demonstrates the minimal amount of materials needed to craft a felt pouch while explaining the many uses felt has served historically. She passes down her tips and tricks learnt over the years as encourages you to make your own felt creation.

Wild Harvests: Rosehips and Sloes

by WoodlandsTV ~ 2 December, 2019 ~ 4 comments

In this film, Fi recommends using dog rose hips for making roseship tea, a delicious drink full of Vitamin C and the scent of Autumn. We then take a look at the blackthorn's shockingly sour sloeberries, which can be transformed into (surely?!) everyone's easy homemade favourite – sloe gin!

Our guide for the Wild Harvests series, Fi Martynoga, is an expert forager and writer, living in the Scottish Borders. She has put together a most wonderful book called Scotland's Wild Harvests, and is a writer for Reforesting Scotland magazine, as well as being involved with Carrifran Wildwood (which I am invited to make a film about next year when they celebrate 20 years of success!).

Hornbeam: Our Magical Friend

by WoodlandsTV ~ 22 November, 2019 ~ 83 comments

“What is the hornbeam?” says Nick Lear, who has been managing a large hornbeam wood in Sussex for more than 20 years. Often confused with the beech, very few people really know the tree and its many qualities. This film takes us on a journey from Sussex to Walthamstow in London to explore its history, its many uses, its beauty and sheer resilience. Largely forgotten by many foresters, we learn from a woodsman, an outdoor chef, an artist and a community activist what the tree really represents. Enjoy the journey from “the very best of firewood” to a Bach remedy that “revives the soul”.

A film for WoodlandsTV, produced by One Planet Media a small company who really love trees, with two woodland owners amongst its Associates.
