Theme: Forests

Providing an additional platform to showcase your handcrafted work.

Every month, we share a theme. Makers from all over the country are invited to create new work or share photos of existing work that relates to the chosen theme of the month. The theme for October 2023 was 'Forests.'

If you use social media, we encourage you to like and follow this month's makers. Links to their profiles can be found below.

Peter Jackson

Maker: Peter Jackson
Craft: Woodturning

What inspired this piece: This "Tree in a bowl" piece was inspired by a demonstration by Richard Kennedy, a well known professional woodturner who creates fantastic bowls way way better than my effort. However this was my first attempt, so practice, practice, practice! The bowl wood is monkey puzzle and it sits on a yew base.
