Subject: RE: Tech: Q for ancient order of bucket menders.

My mum taught herself how to make a straw skep

She recently had an article written about her in Country Life Magazine
Subsequently she recieved a letter from an Austrian Lady whose father had made buckets from straw
Think thatch it keeps out rain and snow for many years!
