Wild Jewellery – Norfolk Wildlife Trust

Published by timwilley on

Jewellery in its broadest (and wildest sense). A great day’s teaching at Hickling Reserve, with a very enthusiastic group of students. We learnt how to make cordage from willow bark and nettle, and then, set about making some beautiful little constructions from the materials harvested close by. Definitely ‘adaption in action’.
