Wonderful day filming for Beyond The Trees with Darren Hamlin and the children, including Björn from Överbygg Sverige AB. Great to see these kids being immersed mentally. No phones were even thought about.

A new Parka I recently made for a gentleman in Scotland.

Its our basic parka without a Ruff, pockets, chest pocket or a long back. Its lined with a high quality Norwegian wool, colour of your choice, piped with reindeer leather. Its a beautiful example of a basic parka.

Making bread from bark is one of my recent projects, which has turned out to be very successful. Using first nation techniques to make it edible.

Ive also been making a chaga type of bread/cookie in this way.

Its a unique resource all around us, as well as the bread being jammed with fibre makes it a wonderful survival food.

Harvested spruce punk and dried it ready for the first smoke as its been wet of late.
First all day smoking on the hair side of one of the moose skins in the Smoke house.
Using the birch bark harvested from the building of the 'Goahti'.
The bark will twist when heated, allowing the spruce to establish and smolder inside the bark to begin the process.

Tack! 👌Vanja Vindstad

Any ideas on what i can make out of this? 🤔

Our Birch bark harvest season has begun, its my favourite month. I read the forest signs at this time of year, waiting and watching in anticipation. Firstly the snow departs, our lakes slowly melt to a vibrant blue,and then small significant green shoots appear, fragrances are released from the mosses on the forest floor as you walk, before the right time to harvest is complete, a time when she releases her beautiful resource and allows us to share.
I love this tree so much, my daughter has the tree in her name. Freja Ella Björksjön Rees.

Many people ask or wonder about this particular subject. "Because of our awareness of the importance of ecology, harvesting birch bark triggers disputes over the question, does removing the bark or cortex kill the tree or does the tree continue to grow? The majority of people are more inclined to condem than to submerge themselves into the world of birch bark forest folk for harvesting their raw material.
In any case, harvesting the bark only without touching the fragile cambium layer, the tree lives on, and will grow new bark. It will begin to grow more slowly and its wood will become harder"

[06/09/20]   Good Morning everyone!
We at Wild Spirit have been busy over the last few weeks with fixing our kit and kennels after the winter season, there is always alot to do after winter, plus with the Coronavirus and an abrubt end to our season, we have been a little stressed regarding finances etc...but extremely lucky to be able to promote sponsor a dog, which is something that we have wanted to do, and have been asked to do by our guests previously.

Today we will be going out checking the Birch Trees, and seeing if they are ready for tapping.

We are looking forward to our next project, which will be reveled in due time, but right now we are preparing for it. This project we are going to be partnering up with Darren Hamlin, really exciting times!

We all having an Amadou party tonight.. Great results from the humble hoof fungus..or Forms Formintaris.

Taken directly from the tree and processed there right away without boiling or hammering, which is completely unnecessary.

We will use the Amadou leathers and incorporate it into the making of our reindeer skin clothing.
