Our scroll sticks are used as handicraft and teaching materials. History buffs use scrolls as invitation cards, gift ideas or home accessories, for example. The wooden sticks and heads of the scrolls are turned from solid beech wood, have a natural grain and a timeless design.
Classic scroll bar with its areas of application
Scrolls were already used as precious book rolls in ancient times. The bound or glued parchment, papyrus or leather scrolls were fitted with so-called scroll bars at the ends to provide the necessary strength and as a rolling aid. These rods were usually sturdy wooden sticks. By unrolling or rolling them up, the current text was always available for reading. In ancient times, the scrolls were rolled sideways and in the Middle Ages from top to bottom. In antiquity, scrolls were a symbol of education and learning. In the Middle Ages, scrolls were used for administration, recording family trees and historical data and were used in a religious liturgical context. To this day, scrolls are used as Torah scrolls in Jewish religious services. Torah scrolls are only touched with the hands on the scroll poles. High-quality scroll poles contribute significantly to the longevity of the scrolls.
Designing scroll bars
Our scroll poles can be painted or oiled with commercially available paint. You can find suitable accessories, paints and glue in our store. It is also worth taking a look at our range of papyrus sheets and accessories.
Design several scroll bars together with your pupils, e.g. as a class project! Use these as a basis for making scrolls! Think together about the skills and conditions required to make scrolls and wooden sticks robust, hard-wearing and durable.
