Event Details

Make A Shrink Pot

Make a shrink pot originate from Scandinavia, and are traditionally used for storing dry goods.

The pots are made from round sections of green wood. The log is drilled right through with a hand auger, and then hollowed out from each end using a knife, achieving an even thickness.

A groove is then cut just up from the base, ,and a piece of dry wood is shaped to slot into the groove. When the base is popped in, the green wood shrinks firmly around the base as it dries. Lids can be made for these pots, and they also look good coloured with milk or oil paints, and lend themselves to decorative carving.

Beginners and more experienced carvers all welcome on this course.
