Last weekend I went to Kent on an intensive bladesmithing course with master smith Owen Bush. I have been forging my own woodturning tools for 15 years but everything I do has been learned by trial and error and I wanted to see if I could improve the quality of my tools so that they stay sharper for longer. It was a thoroughly enjoyable weekend and I learned a lot. It was also interesting to watch someone else teaching a craft course. We are always looking to improve the quality of our spooncarving courses and we pick up tips wherever we can.

Nicola came too and did some video which is now on youtube here

and a longer video of the course here
