The ball itself was enjoyable- I must say the demonstrators worked tirelessly to provide constant points of interest throughout the weekend and the flow of information and tips was very much appreciated.Dave Jackson in particular never seemed to stop and demonstrated a variety of different crafts. Thats Dave making Gypsie flowers on the Shavehorse.
For me the highlight of the weekend was watching Henry Russell and Robin Wood Hewing timber using axes. I have to confess I love axe work, when I first got into green woodworking I was amazed at the versatility of these tools- from wasting large amounts of timber to refining detail to almost finished items. I would love to get on a course under Henry's tutilage and work towards producing some kind of Cruck of my own.
