Cotswold Woodland Crafts April and July 2016

I’ll also be running two spooncarving courses in Gloucestershire as part of theаCotswold Woodland Craftsаprogramme on Saturday 23 April and Saturday 23 July 2016. You can book on these courses at their website. Whilst you are there take a look at the range of other courses they offer. The images below shows a keen group of students mastering the techniques of pole lathing on a course in Autumn 2012 at the Prinknash Abbey site and some images from my April 2013 spooncarving session, where I was joined by Anna Casserley, seen below carving a spoon from elder. Anna had just returned from a session at Stroud Farmer’s Market demonstrating May Whistle making. For more details do visit herаMay Whistleаwebsite.

Spooncarving at Sharpham Esate, Devon

I ran a Spooncarving and Conservation Day course on Thursday 1 November 2012 in the beautiful grounds of the Sharpham Estate in South Devon, on the banks of the River Dart. The day was hosted by the Sharpham Outdoors Project as part of Devon Hedge Week. For more details please click here.
