Make a Shrink Pot Workshop
Experience the magic of shrink pots! Shrink pots are made by hollowing out a log whilst it is still 'green' with plenty of water content in it, a hardwood base is popped into the base and as the log dries, it shrinks around the base creating a beautiful and functional pot.

We will look at suitable wood selection, cover the pitfalls and joys of shrinkpot carving, and using hand tools including augers, gouges and hook knives, shape our own shrinkpots, useful for a myriad of applications from tea caddies to trinket pots. 

No previous experience required, though this workshop may well appeal also to intermediate and advanced wood carvers wishing to give this unique craft a go
