As I said - there were some real skills on show in the demonstration marquees at Woburn.

Here's some pictures of corn dollies made by Carol & Ralph Attewell from Leicester. They had a very impressive display of strawcraft and are members of the Guild of Straw Craftsmen

Nick Westermann a blacksmith from Machynlleth was also there. I like his work and he has made some tools for me in the past.
Here's a selection of knobs, knockers, handles, hooks and nails.

There was also a stick maker, felt maker, woodcarver, ladder back chair maker, calligrapher and a stone mason as well as the aforementioned.

Shame the punters weren't as good quality as the craftsmen!

Bodgers Ball at the weekend . . .
