Update: Message in a Bamboo ‘Bottle’ – First Bottle Returned!

Message in a Bottle 'From Yarmouth With Love'

Message in a Bottle 'From Yarmouth With Love'

You may remember

in December a group of Great Yarmouth students launched their art work into the sea off Yarmouth coast inside bamboo bottles as part of an experiment to see where they’d land up. The students launched the project with Time & Tide Museum in conjunction with the Holding Back the Tide project. The first bottle has been picked up by the Shipwreck Museum in Holland.

The first tubes were found on Christmas Day on an island off the coast of Holland and are now on display in the ship wreck museum there. We all think this is very exciting news!

    I would like to find out more about the construction of the bottles that were used – bamboo?

      Hi Jesse,

      The bottles were bamboo with I think a wax seal. They were biodegradable and fairly large – a little bit longer than a tin can and very slightly more slender.

    Hey, like Jesse, I want to know every last detail you know about these waxed bamboo bottles. Where did you get them? Can you find a pic, or source or a look-a-like online for me? Thank you! -C
