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

A visit to 'Old School Woodcarving' in the village of Walton, near Glastonbury in Somerset

Whilst travelling to Devon recently (to get some medieval-style woodcarving tools made by Dave Budd), I had the chance for an unexpected visit to 'Old School Woodcarving'.

Anthony Griffiths has been teaching carving in an old primary school building there since 1998 and has been carving for about 30 years. He is on the left in the photo below, enjoying a tea break with some of his students:

The classes seem very nicely set out, with a range of good-quality tools for students to use. The teaching spaces are also well-lit.

Anthony himself enjoys carving large flower displays. There is one being worked on to the left of the first photo above. Another is in the corner of the large teaching space:

It was great to meet Anthony and I wish him all the best with his courses.
