craftsman has studied the runes in depth for many years
and has worked closely with wood and trees for most of
his life. Through learning about traditional pairings
and using his own, deep knowledge of wood, he has
skilfully brought together tree and rune to give a
set of traditionally corresponding runes.

feature only once in the set whereas others may be used
to craft two or more different runes. The symbols are
matched to the wood type which brings out the particular
attributes of that rune and some of the wood types

As an alternative to the muslin bag, hand sewn
