Nature Recreation

(Re)créations nature - Petits ateliers avec les plantes des bois et des prés de Doris Fischer - Edition Terran, March 2019 - 256 Pages

Ahe holidays are literally like playing hooky! And the readiness to learn for a prosperous life and a closer relationship with nature. Let's forget about modern tools and life and rely only on what the environment has to offer!
 
Maple, willow, nettle, cereals, rush, poppies and so many others have accompanied man for so long in the forests, wastelands and meadows that he has patiently learned to know them, to use them and to derive innumerable uses from them for everyday life as well as for feast days. As ordinary as they may seem to us today, these trees and plants provide unsuspected materials that delighted the craftsmen and children of yesterday, providing almost infinite support for their creations.
 
This book offers you the opportunity to revive forgotten skills through 30 common plants to be rediscovered. You will thus learn how to find them easily in natural areas, how to harvest them respectfully, how to know them, with their history, their traditional and contemporary use, which will open you to more than 200 achievements.
From the most practical to the most playful object, from the bramble basket to the elderberry musical instrument, from the oracle given by the plantain leaf to toothpaste to beech ash, passing by birch lacquer, the rush swan, the spruce barometer branch or the recipe for nuts in syrup, here is a treasure and a source of inspiration for all those who love the outdoors and are interested in plants and bushcraft, the art of living in the woods.
 
 
This book is a mine of ideas and playful activities to rediscover the forgotten sensations of craftsmanship: a whole universe of poetry to reconnect with nature.
 
Born in 1965 in West Germany, Doris Fischer is an archaeological excavation technician. Passionate about ancient craft techniques, she is particularly interested in the use of traditional plants, experimental archaeology, reconstitution of techniques and photography. She leads workshops in schools and museums, and offers courses in wool spinning and dyeing with vegetable dyes.
