At school I remember making a wooden candlestick, a trowel, a beaten brass dish and a very heavy letter opener … Although I don’t think I would have bought any of them. Twenty years ago I dabbled at calligraphy, quilling and embossing and I have tried water colour and silk painting. I want to find a craft I’m good at and that someone might buy …. What should I try next I wonder…. I’ve just finished stripping and French polishing a nest of 40 year old tables that I enjoyed, but there is a limit to the number of times my wife will let me do this to our furniture, what should I try next ?
