Making a May whistle is one of the many traditions associated to May Day and a simple craft project to introduce skills not just for carving wood but using the tree bark as well. I like to make them because they’re a simple, seasonal project that can only be done at the right time of year.
Anna Casserley has been collecting information and stories on her May Whistles website and produced this instruction leaflet so you can ‘ring in the summer’.
A comprehensive and practical guide to working with an Austrian scythe. Perfect if you cannot attend a course or as a reference guide following tuition.
