Creative goodness

Tonight was the last in Julia Bradbury’s series of “walks with a view” and she led viewers around my home valley of Edale. On the way she stopped by the workshop and helped turn a bowl. You can see the program on ITV player here  not sure how long it will be live for or if it is visible outside the UK.

The official ITV adverts said

“Heading off from the Derbyshire village of Edale, Julia joins the long history of walkers to ascend the Kinder Plateau, a place so integral to the creation of Britain’s very first National Trail over 50 years ago. On route, she catches up with her dad and discovers other surprising locals – including an ancient wood-bowl maker”

My mates were asking which one I was. Julia was rather kinder on her instagram feed  where she said  “This man is overflowing with creative goodness”

We filmed one evening last autumn as I was busy teaching a spooncarving course during the days they were here. I have filmed with a lot of folks and they always seem to be nice but these folk were an especially nice team and seemed to be having a blast.
