And so with another year nearly over and a new one just on the door step, i would just like to thank everyone for all of your support over the past year. And what a year!!! From raising over £700 at the Manchester Ball for children with Autism, to the production of a whole new series of products ranging from 2m high sculptures to teeny tiny silver and wood jewellery! Ive met lots of really lovely people, have a new website, exhibited at 4 shows in as many weeks and found a new love for writing in the form of my monthly column for good woodworking magazine.
