European Woodworking Show 2017

The European Woodworking Show returns this year and is due to take place from 16-17 September, at the historic Cressing Temple Barns near Braintree in Essex.

Demonstrators and exhibitors really enjoy EWS and most take little persuading to return to the show to either demonstrate their skills or showcase their wares. The show’s overseas contingent includes Chris Schwarz of Lost Art Press, Dave Jeske of Blue Spruce Toolworks, Ron Hock of Hock Tools, Thomas Lie-Nielsen of Lie Nielsen Toolworks, Chris Vesper, Sadatsugu Watanabe, and Chris Vesper of Veritas tools.

Firm favourites will be returning, including turners Joey Richardson, Mark Hancock, pyrographer extraordinaire Bob Neill, timber hewer Steve Woodley, woodcarvers Peter Berry, Tim Atkins and Dave Johnson, marionette maker Lenka Pavlickova, scrollsaw expert Fiona Kingdon, Japanese joint maker Brian Walsh, plus furniture makers David Charlesworth, Dylan Pym, David Barron and Treeincarnated.

Willy Rackham, The International Boat Building College, Willow Sculpture by Louise, blacksmith Nic Westerman, knife maker Ord Knives, and Dave Wilkins stick maker add variety to the show and every effort will be made to make EWS 2017 as diverse and as interesting as possible.

The British Woodcarvers’ Association (BWA) will also be hosting their extremely popular public vote competition.
There will also be many familiar tool suppliers in attendance including Turners Retreat, Trend Tools & Machinery, Lie- Nielsen Toolworks, Gransfors Bruks axes, Pfeil, Auriou and Flexcut carving tools, Classic Hand Tools, Lincolnshire Woodcraft, Chestnut Products, David Barron Furniture, and a host of other retailers.
