Wooden bowl on Paul Martin’s BBC Handmade Revolution

Paul Martin’s Handmade Revolution went out today on BBC 2 if you missed it this link to iplayer will work for a week or so (UK only I am afraid) and starts at 28 minutes in on the section with Paul learning to turn a bowl.


It was a great days filming and we all had a lot of fun. This was the start of the day crew setting up.

 Paul really got stuck in, he is a really nice guy.

 This is what it looks like from the other side of the lens, camera man and soundman right in your face but after a while you just forget they are there. They are a fun team and everyone is working together to show the craft off as well as they can.

 Paul pausing as he nears the end of the outside of his bowl, it is hard work.

 and with his finished bowl and spoon.

If anyone is inspired to learn I have bowl carving courses and spoon carving courses coming up in the next few weeks with some places still available. Come and join me in one of the most beautiful parts of Derbyshire for three days of hand woodwork and go home with bowls or spoons and new skills. Details here
