This blog is continued with older entries on my website's 'Latest News' page, where you can see projects and images going back to February 2009.

There's loads of images of my carvings and projects on the website, going right back to when I first started out carving. There are also, of course, a few stories. To see them or to return to the website, please click on this link

Bristol wood carving workshop


At the weekend, I oversaw a woodcarving workshop for my driving instructor at a staff social that he and his family were running. A really nice idea - rather than just sitting about talking shop, an activity is run at each social so that the staff can try out different skills, with their families. There were about 15 people in all and everyone got stuck in and had a go at relief carving some nice pieces of seasoned oak and sweet chestnut. They all seemed very happy with what they made and even an unexpected hailstorm didn't dampen the occasion. Those who wanted to also had the chance to try carving a spatula with a knife and hook knife.




Thanks to Jeff and his family for inviting me along to run the workshop and, if you need to learn to drive, you can find them at http://www.chequersmotoringschool.co.uk/
