This annual members-only ‘get together’ of the Association of Pole Lathe Turners and Green Woodworkers (APTGW) takes place on 6–8 May this year at Tyntesfield, a National Trust estate near Bristol. It will be a fun-filled weekend of making and competing in all things ‘green’. The estate is open to the public under National Trust entry, and visitors can gain access to the Bodgers Ball field with the same ticket. Find out further details on the National Trust website: www.nationaltrust.org.uk/tyntesfield
If you are interested in taking up green woodworking, whether as a complete novice or an experienced woodworker, you can join the APTGW by visiting their website: www.bodgers.org.uk. You can a buy tickets for the Ball once you have signed up for membership (£25 per adult for weekend including camping, under 17’s free).
Bodging is a great way learn new ‘old’ skills and make new friends! Annual membership of £20 entitles you to take part in various events including the annual Bodgers Ball and also receive the thrice-yearly publication The Bodgers Gazette.
We feature green woodworking articles in our very own monthly Woodworking Crafts magazine written by experienced, skilled members of the APTGW.
