Bastugnen i Nötarp

Bastugnen restaurerades i slutet av 1980-talet. Bastugnar fanns i de flesta byar, företrädesvis i skogsbygderna där man hade större behov av extrainkomst. Tekniken var att man eldade i ugnen och sedan lade in armstjocka lindgrenar i ugnen för att värma upp dem så att innerbarken/fibrerna lossnade. Därefter torkade man dem till bastband. Av dessa gjorde man bastrep, mattor och korgar för eget bruk och till försäljning.

Cachen är ej gömd i eller på bastugnen!

The bastoven in Nötarp

The bastoven was restored in the late 1980s. There were bastovens in most villages, chiefly in forest districts were there where more needs for extra incomes. The tecnic was to heat the oven and then put in branches, big as arms, of lime tree into the oven to warm them up so that the fibres were loosened. After that the fibres were dried to bands of bast. From these were made ropes, mats and baskets for their own needs and fore trading. You can´t find the cache in or on the bastoven!
