Traditional Skills Rekindled

Monday, September 23rd 2013

Woodcarving was one of the activities on offer on Sunday by the newly formed team of wood workers called the Foxglove Bodgers. This beautiful spoon was created by one of the group members.

Another highlight of the most recent meet was this 1st WW portable forge. This piece of equipment is over 100 years old and had not used for 30 years!

There was an opportunity to try out metal work on a more modern complete portable forge…everyone had a go.

The young budding bodgers were pleased with their work!
