The Association is proud to include many modern-day Bodgers in our ranks with pole-lathe turners, spoon carvers, blacksmiths, basket weavers, and chair makers to name a few of the heritage craftspeople making up our ranks.


A fair few of these capable individuals provide courses, tuition, and demonstrations as well as selling the incredible products they produce.

Below you can search for a Bodger who can help you with all your green woodworking needs.
