How to keep the bark on the Arbutus from peeling?
I am a weaver in Van., a big part of my motivation comes from nature, thankfully I live across from the ocean and have a wooded park across the street I am blessed with an arbutus tree in my garden and have taken some beautiful pieces I want to integrate into my next weaving. Is there a particular way I can dry the wood to keep the beautiful bark on? The pieces I have have lost their old bark and are presently light green in colour. I would so appreciate any tips you can give me. I await your reply, Marilyn
