Bark Stripping
We held an open skills day of stripping poplar bark on April 21, 2012!

Primal Knowledge held a one day experimental workshop on stripping bark for use in primitive shelter building.

We used both stone and modern tools. We attempted to store the bark in a fashion to prevent it from curling.

Some of our supporters joined us for the experience. Eventually, the bark is intended to be used as the roofing for a primitive long house construction.
