A couple of years ago, I was asked to run short workshops, with Mrs YS, at a local junior school. I centred it around the recycling of wood and provided masses of ‘specially made’ offcuts for the (enthusiastically received) practical sessions. At the end, we gave each participant a piece of wooden jewellery or a keyring.
About a year after, We saw a lady in the butchers’ shop wearing one of ‘my’ brooches. Being interested in which of the children had thought to pass it on as a gift, I asked where she had got her brooch from. She told us that her son had MADE it for her! What would other Lumberjocks have said in reply?
I didn’t disillusion her!
