Hereford Contemporary

The first day of Hereford Contemporary was greeted with a crisp frost followed by a morning of almost warm sunshine at the Left Bank overlooking the River Wye in the centre of Hereford today – a very different backdrop from my usual rural idyll.

Chair 20

I spent the day shaving bits of ash wood to make back legs for my next chairs, while my neighbour, Sylvan was working on some of his round-wood structures using his magnificent shaving horse.

After some heavy overnight rain tonight, we are hoping for a dry afternoon at least, followed by another dry day on Sunday, so get yourselves along to see our demos as well as a host of lovely crafts indoors.

  1. Hello from Australia, are you coming down this way any time soon? I live in a forest and maybe you could run a workshop from here too? Cheers, Lina

      Hi Lina Eve,
      thanks for the comment. I might be going across the channel next year but I’m afraid nowhere near Australia. There’s a Facebook page called Spoon carving, green woodwork & sloyd (or something like it) with all sorts of useful info and worldwide contacts, so I hope to see you there. Regards,
      Mike
