* How to build and operate a kiln for schools, aimed at pupils aged seven to eight, highlights ways in which children can grow willow and create something useful from it, such as drawing charcoal. The booklet covers a cross-curricular project by pupils from Ardsley Oaks Junior School in Barnsley, who fired home-grown willow in their new kiln, built to a Marshalls construction company design, and carried out several test firings using different fuels. The resulting charcoal was used for artwork and displays. Available from: Rachel Brown, Marshalls, Southowram, Halifax, West Yorkshire HX3 9SY, tel: 01422 306000, fax: 01422 306026.
