A fun time was spent wood block printing and stamping at the Twt Beech wood craft fair. A lovely project to be involved with celebrating the life of a 240 year old Beech tree, much loved by the community in Cowbridge, South Wales. The tree needed to be taken down from Twt Park due to disease and so a community project has been born to follow what happens to the 20 tonnes of Beech wood.
The wood craft fair involved spoon carving, puppet making, pole lathe, pencil making, and I was wood block printing and stamping on wooden discs, all on Twt Beech wood.
The project will continue as the wood seasons and more can be made with the wood, culminating in an exhibition in a year or so.
