Enjoy the relaxed setting of Bradfield Woods to explore the wonderful world of the Silver Birch Tree. Learn all about the ecology and the many uses of this marvelous tree. Carve your own spoons, spatulas and hooks from the green wood. See what colours can be extracted from the bark and dye your own samples. Use the bark to make birch bark tar and how to turn tar into glue. Complete the day by using the rest of the wood to make pimps.
