The Thursday was wet and windy to say the least - and I know a lot of other shows were cancelled due to the weather, for example the Royal Cornwall, which I use to demonstrate at years ago.
As with all of the wood shows I go to, the other craftsmen are a joy to meet and are good fun to be around.
Doug is a horse logger and his apprentice Richard was using his own horse, Elizabeth, to haul logs and to pull the bracken basher. http://www.richardeames.co.uk/6.html
Doug is running a raffle to win a Morgan 3-wheeler, a Bristish hand-made car, to raise money for the British Horseloggers' Charitable Trust. http://www.britishhorseloggerscharitabletrust.org/ Doug's site is http://www.heavyhorses.net/index.htm and if you want to try and win a Morgan then you can buy a tickets here http://www.britishhorseloggerscharitabletrust.org/pages/morganraffle.htm the odds are really good.
Gudrun was running have-a-go pole lathes, with many young aspiring pole lathe turners busily turning. I have seen Gudrun's chairs for many years and much admired them. I have never, as of yet, been to Clisset wood but her work can be seen here http://www.greenwoodwork.co.uk/index.html

There are a few other people that I have not mentioned enough, for example Jo, doing lots of painting, printing and collage with children. http://www.moretonwood.co.uk/Products.php One of the few suppliers of bark seating materials.
