I went to my fist british woodcarvers association meeting lastnight , and found quite a few folk there carved walking sticks and staffs too , was a very pleasent and interesting couple of hours and found the folk to be very friendly and knowledgable , they had a lot of pre formed blanks for stick toppers in most animal forms that could be purchased for a couple of pound and a lot of tools for us to use and try .

Needless to say i will be making it a weekly thing and gaining some much needed schooling lol , i will keep my progress updated if anybody would be interested .

Here in the US the clubs are also friendly and fun. As well as a wealth of information about tools and carving. I encourage anyone who carves to give a group a try if they have not been to a carving club or guild.

From what I have been told take your sleeping bag because it's a full days job :) Likewise if ever he calls in, apparently he's like the proverbial on a blanket to shift, talks for hours :)
