Many years ago I was off work with a bad back I was walking my dog through the woods and picked up a stick to help me walk. I looked on the internet and found an interesting blog on wood spirit sticks and how to carve them. I thought I would give it a go and to my surpirse I carved a stick that everyone liked.
Having always used a stick from the young age of 15 when working on Upton farm part of the Upton House estate in Dorset I never thought I would be making traditional hand crafted shepherds crooks and carved horn sticks. After carving a lot more sticks I tried to find a local stick making club and joined the Hants and Dorset Stickmakers and there met my good friend Charlie Walker. I found the club really helpful when I first started with all the members offering advice. As an experienced maker myself I now offer help and advice to the clubs new members. I am also a member of the British Stickmakers Guild and enter sticks in various national competitions.

Our handmade Ram's Horn walking sticks and shepherd's crooks are hand crafted in Dorset using hazel, sweet chestnut, holly, and, if available, blackthorn for our shanks, which makes our sticks strong and long-lasting.
