Hi,

I tried to register the usual way by entering my email address etc, but I go completely stumped at the security challenge. I even listened to the audio thing for the numbers. despite entering them correctly it still said my registration had failed. I've resorted to logging in here with Facebook which I really don't like - so if anyone has any suggestions as to how I can change from logging in with FB to the usual email way I'd be grateful!

Now thats out of the way - I tried my hand at making a few sticks somewhat successfully. However I hit a snag with one and totally rage-quit making anything. I was at a country fair yesterday (my band were playing most of the day to entertain the passers-by) and there was a stick maker there who I got chatting to. I bought a few bits and a stick from him. I'm hoping to get back into it. I hope you can put up with all my questions!!

Hi and welcome! Recently I went from stick making as a passing fancy to a full blown obsession. With the exception of a couple of books, most of my questions have been answered here. As far as getting back into it is concerned.. You're an artist, the process is same for stick making as music, painting, writing... Try what I do. Grab a stick put on your favorite album and let it happen! Nice photo by the way!

Welcome! Frustration is natural. Walk away a while then come back when you're ready. Good thing is you live in a country with a long and rich tradition in stick making. We have several excellent British stick makers here. There may also be a club near you that you can join. We're happy to answer any questions you have but nothing compares to live instruction.

Hello and welcome. I have found stick-making the most satisfying hobby I have had. Also great to have a fellow musician here as well. Do you have anything on line to listen to?

What are the benefits of joining the British Stickmakers Guild?

Well, you would benefit by getting to read some excellent instructional articles by some of the best stick makers in the UK. Also you would get to view photo's of some excellent sticks UK style.

Have a look at the Facebook page for the British Stickmakers Guild.

Hope this helps.
