The Oxford & District Woodcarvers is a club for woodcarvers of all levels of experience, from beginners to advanced. The club has been running for 18 years and was founded by Brian Eastoe. Since Brian’s retirement, Jeff Wheeler has taken over as tutor.
This week, the club has exhibited and demonstrated wood carving in Unit 24, Bury Street, Abingdon, and has stimulated interest in the very ancient art and craft of wood carving. Wood carving demands both artistic and manual skills. One of the members was telling me that it is a collaborative process between the carver and the wood to reveal what is hidden inside.
The club meets on Thursday evenings between 7.00 and 9.00 pm during term time at John Mason School, Abingdon.
