Do you want a Grandourist stick?

9 juny bastons

We are planning a special object for walkers in Grand Tour. One idea would be a stick of wood. A stick that had not yet lost the branch shape of the tree once was, helpful to walk  and supportive in difficult steps. We are still mulling because it has to be something beautiful but also useful.
We met Roger Romagosa from Slow Fusta who has a workshop in Sant Martí Vell and gave us some ideas. We also went to La Cellera de Ter where the whole Carreras family is engaged in the craft of cutting branches and make walking sticks and furniture. There we bought fifty chestnut sticks to try some experiments. Let’s see what comes out.
If anyone has good ideas on poles they are very welcome!
