Eco Printing

by WoodlandsTV ~ 19 January, 2018 ~ 19 comments

Here in the woods at Bentley Woodfair, textiles expert, Mo Jackson, shares her knowledge and passion for experimenting with the unpredictable art of eco printing. Mo talks through the processes with enthusiasts Emma and Katie: from the importance of choosing leaves containing the most tannin (such as rose, sycamore and Japanese maple), to the use of mordants to fix this natural dye, through to the varying visual effects created by the use of different fabrics and equipment. http://mofeltart.weebly.com/; [email protected]; http://www.bentley.org.uk/

Making a Dugout Canoe

by WoodlandsTV ~ 12 October, 2016 ~ 17 comments

Artistic woodworker Arthur de Mowbray puts real heart into his craft as he shares his obvious skill and enthusiasm for designing and building a contemporary leisure boat from available timbers. He talks us through the making of `The Mighty Sparrow`, from a fourteen foot long poplar log. Arthur takes traditional boat-building methods and adapts them to suit the lighter, smaller poplar - whilst still using oak off-cuts for specific structural items. From cutting, carving, stretching and stabilising - to `wearing` the beautiful finished boat - Arthur `s respect for the wood and for his craft is clear. http://www.arthurdemowbray.co.uk/dugout-canoes.
