  • Six happy years - Robin Wood
    way I am most proud to have helped assemble and worked alongside such a fantastic team of voluntary trustees Together we have secured backing from many influential friends including HRH The Prince of Wales as our President We worked with Skills Minister John Hayes to map the sector establishing just how economically important the trades and crafts are contributing 4 4 billion in GVA Gross Value Added to the UK economy that is the sort of figure that gets politicians interested it is the equivalent of the petrochemical industry or the whole of the Scottish food and drink industry Whilst this sort of high end lobbying is important I have always said the HCA should be judged by changes that can be seen by craftspeople in their workshops Despite working with very limited funds we have managed to put together a great suite of H eritage Craft Awards which not only give much needed financial support but also recognition Perhaps the highest awards we have helped achieve however are the various folk we have nominated for National Honours I can speak from personal experience when I say that as a craftsperson being awarded an MBE changes the way many folk view the work that you do suddenly folk take us seriously Now the time has come though to stand down as chair 6 years has demanded a lot of energy and kept me away from the workshop It is a long time since I camped by a beach and went surfing We have found a excellent new chair in Jonathan Lloyd Platt who will I am sure lead the organisation on to greater things I hope to have more time in the workshop and more time on the beach and in the woods You may also like to read Do what you love Birch bark canoe trip to the boundary waters Haddon Hall show preview Robin Wood at Haddon Hall 20 year show Apprenticeship Haddon Hall show preview One Response to Six happy years graeme August 20 2015 at 11 27 am That s quite a feat Robin I have enough trouble being an ancillary committee member of a local association Reply Leave a Reply Click here to cancel reply Name required Email will not be published required Comment Search Blog Posts News and social media My newsletter has updates on new products courses and events Sign up here Latest blog posts Creative goodness The story of a spoon Spooncarving knife making in Sheffield Do what you love The Man Who Made Things From Trees me on Radio 4 Featured blog posts How to price craft work business advice for craftspeople Which is the best spoon carving knife hook knife any fool can make something more complex but it takes real genius to make things simple again building the world s most iconic viking ship part 1 Welsh love spoons and cawl spoons how to make a new axe handle What is the best knife for wood carving and whittling
