Description

The purpose of this course taking place in the Vercors Massif is to enter the world of trees, forest, and wood.

You will learn to recognize the different species by the leaves, the bark, the fruit ... but also their ecologies, their specificities, their ancestral and current uses. You will also be introduced to the differences in their wood: flexibility, robustness, hardness, etc.

Theory and practice will be closely intertwined, and the course includes an introduction to woodwork, for small objects, or for larger constructions, but also the learning of traditional techniques of fire ignition.
