Bodgers Ball 2019

2019 – NT Wimpole Estate, Cambridgeshire

Bodgers Ball 2019 Mark Griffin's 3rd place Skeleton Chair and Ivy Leaf Gentleman's Chair

The Bodgers’ Ball this year took place in the grounds of the National Trust property Wimpole Hall, Cambridgeshire on 12th-13th May.

I’m absolutely delighted with my two 3rd Places in the Bodgers’ Ball 2019 Craft Competitions this year. Competition was tough – the quality of craftsmanship was outstanding and the wood selected for the winning chair seats was absolutely beautiful so I’m amazed that my hand-woven seated chairs were even placed!

Check out the Shop to see more of my chairs.

Above everything else, the Bodgers’ Ball is always a hive of activity with pre-Ball courses for APTGW members and the opportunity to catch up with old friends and make new ones. We all have something in common: our love of green woodworking. Next year’s Bodgers’ Ball will be in North Wales, will you be there? I will.
