There’s a fantastic opportunity to purchase a carving at one of the auctions with a price to suit most pockets. See it grow into a stunning piece of art over the carving period. Speed carvings are particularly popular in this respect; a finished carving in thirty minutes.

The sculptures make stunning garden centrepieces, or as with 2016’s classic winning elephant sculpture, a finishing touch to an entrance hallway.
