Welcome aboard Pete. We do have a few British stick makers here but I don't know how close they are to you.

Hello  Pete and welcome to the forum. Many great stickmaker groups in the uk. I am a US member of the British Stickmakers Guild . https://thebsg.org.uk/  . They are a great group and have activities all around the UK. There is also a good group of stickmakers in a UK Facebook group " stickmakers& suppliers" . There are also a large group of You Tube videos By UK stickmakes. Just search "UK strick making videos YouTube.". I also recommend a book , " Stickmaking a complete course" By Andrew Jones & Clive George. I look forward to seeing your work.

 

Randy
