CORNWALL WOODCARVERS

David James

Chairman of Cornwall Woodcarvers from 2004 to 2016

Brought up in Truro of Welsh parents, I have had 40 very happy and fulfilling years of teaching mathematics and a host of outdoor pursuits.
By chance in 1995 I joined one of Roy Hewson's "decoy duck" carving classes - I was hooked - so I also joined the Truro College classes being run by David Bevan.
I really enjoy the challenge of extracting a bird, an animal or a relief from a block of wood as well as being tested by the characteristics of different types of wood, while Welsh lovespoons are popular gifts.
