Bodgin’ and Bedlam Pt.3…

Under the expert eye of Bodger Richard, we began our adventure into the world of Iron Age woodcarving. Using the intricate patterns found on pottery from Glastonbury Lake Village and figurative designs from prehistoric metalwork, we chose a target and started tap, tap, tapping away.

Wednesday’s session saw a pile of new faces joining us, making it the busiest Hands on Heritage to date. The newbies learnt the basics of using an axe, making spoons and spatulas from some freshly felled willow. The rest of the rable cracked on with the joints needed for our  Iron Age bed; getting everything ready for our flatpack, pre-Ikea construction.
