Twig or Coppice Pencils
Handmade twig or coppice colouring pencils, made from locally sourced materials. I generally only use hazel or willow for these pencils as these can be readily found and foraged from the hedgerow and if cut carefully will actually be doing the parent plant a service – I am in effect coppicing the materials I use for these pencils. These are so much more pleasant to use than commercially bought pencils and I feel sure they are far more sustainable in their nature. I do sometimes do special sets – made from particularly unusual twigs with features, and nobody else will have pencils like these…anywhere!!!
