Bill The Bodger

by WoodlandsTV ~ 19 June, 2020 ~ one comment

What actually is a Bodger? WoodlandsTV met Bill at the Oak Fair at Stock Gaylard, and in this film, Bill explains how the traditional bodgers worked in teams in the woodland, each performing a different task. We were pleased to be accompanied on the harp by "Mrs Bodger" Hillary, shyly hiding in their van while Bill was finishing a mallet on his pole lathe. They were working hard to raise money for the charity Cardiac Risk in the Young, www.c-r-y.org.uk, which has personal significance for them.

Carving the Pheonix

by WoodlandsTV ~ 11 June, 2020 ~ comments welcome

Chainsaw artist Ella Fielding created this phoenix sculpture for a school in Mitcham while the pupils were away on half term. Ella started carving ten years ago with the Tree Pirates, and she is now a full time sculptor and mother of two young children. As an artist, she thinks in 3D, and after some brief sketches to demonstrate her idea, Ella uses the form of the wood to guide her instinctively, working with the grain, the knots, any nails and rock pockets becoming part of the finished piece. You can see more of her work on Instagram @ella.fielding.sculptor.

Rewilding: Conversations on the Ground

by WoodlandsTV ~ 28 May, 2020 ~ comments welcome

Rewilding: it sounds great, but it's complicated. We hopefully all agree that it's a good thing to improve the health and biodiversity of our environment. But what does it mean in practice? What are the common misconceptions? What are the real challenges and obstacles to a greener, wilder future? Our film maker Jemma Cholawo interviewed a knowledgeable selection of active 'rewilders' in rural Scotland and the Lake District to ask what it means to them. What does it mean to you? Let us know in the comments.
