Accompany woodsman Ben Law as he celebrates the amazing diversity of craft products made from materials sourced directly from the woods. Including brooms, rakes, pegs, spoons, chairs, baskets, fencing, yurts and even a caravan, the items are hewn from freshly cut green wood, shaped by hand and infused with a simple, rustic beauty. Detailed instructions and advice are given for each craft, along with essential knowledge about tools and devices. With fascinating information on the history, language and traditions of the crafts, coppice management and tree species, this book teaches about all aspects of the low-impact woodland way of life.

“His writing, just like his handiwork, is a joyful celebration of wood, in all its flexibility, beauty, colour and strength. Woodland Craft is at once traditional and forward-looking. Ben reminds us what craft truly is. It’s not just skill in the making of something, but a knowledge and love of one’s materials and understanding of how the finished piece of work will be seen, appreciated and used: in short, how it will speak to the world.”
Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall.
