We love a space-age tent, a bit of glamping canvas or an all-mod-cons campervan, but we also like simplicity too. Thanks to fat dragon on photobucket for this lovely guide to making shelters. We’ve found a good selection of tarps for your tarpaulin origami practice on Amazon, but you’ll find them in most camping and outdoor shops too.
We’ve written a full feature on bivvy camping – for which, a tarp is a VERY good idea. You can also see some more ‘constructed’ tent-like things in our feature on multipurpose shelters. Lots to read, eh!
And here are a few tarps in real-life use!
Don’t forget these amazingly useful tarp clips and bungees…they give you the options to tie up in all sorts of ways.
