Tommy Craggs woodcarver visit

1st May 2013

Tommy Craggs visited Eastlea to provide a demonstration of wood carving for the whole school.  The visit was a great success despite the damp weather and everyone had the amazing opportunity of seeing the superb skills and craftsmanship which it took to carve an owl from a log of cedar wood...using only a chainsaw!!

Tommy Craggs is the craftsman who we have chosen to create our 'Storyteller Chair' in memory of Mrs Jones - using design ideas chosen by the children. The owl carved last week will form part of one of the reading benches which are also being made for our new 'reading courtyard'. 

The aim is to have to the chair and the benches delivered to Eastlea before the end of the summer term!
