CORNWALL WOODCARVERS

I am a very keen inshore sailor, a son of Cornwall, and the third generation living in our cottage. A few years ago I retired from running my own building company, during which time I specialised in the restoration of stone buildings using and passing on traditional skills. I started woodcarving in preparation for retirement, enjoying the 'hands on' approach and the tactile quality of wood with its diverse challenges, my interests so far focussing on Celtic spoons, animal forms and marine life in the round, and various subjects in relief work.
Julian has been Secretary of Cornwall Woodcarvers for the past seven years.
