Welcome to the Selsey Wood Carvers website.
We meet every Wednesday at the Scout Hut,
School Lane, Selsey, West Sussex, PO20 9EH between 10 am and 4 pm. It is an informal meeting
where we bring our tools and carvings to work on and give each other
support. There is ample onsite car parking.
The group was formed in 2014 and at present
has ten members they come from as far afield as Portsmouth and Bognor Regis.
The group spans all skills from total novice to expert both male and
female, it provides an informal arena in which we can help each other
with all aspects of wood and carving including the use of tools.
Visitors are always welcome, why not drop in and have a chat.
There are a wide variety of carvings
including Birds, Figurines, Animals and Tree Spirits Of course
there are many types of ornamental woodwork involved when producing
stands and plaques / shields.
There is always helpful friendly advice available
about all kinds of woodcraft as we are pleased to have wood turners and
wood workers amongst the group. Between us we use many varied tools and
machines including bandsaws, tablesaws and fretsaws so if you are
thinking of buying a new tool or machine normally someone in the group
has the tool or has used one and can help with advice.
We are always looking out for wood so if you are going to take any
timber to the tip please call us and we will collect within the
local area. If you are chopping a tree down again call us to see if we
can help clear the wood for you. Call Paul on 07973 933773.
Sometimes tools come up for sale and these
will be put on the for sale board. If you have tools or wood to
sell and would like to advertise them here then please contact
Wood carving comes under the umbrella of arts
and craft within the Arts Dream Selsey.
