by WoodlandsTV ~ 21 August, 2020 ~ comments welcome

East Devon artist and musician Matt Calder turns sculptural forms using spalted beech and sycamore, inspired by his experience of Japanese ceramics. Matt has a particular passion for "things inside things inside things..." originally inspired by his wife's pregnancy, and in this film he makes an egg form.

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.
