Wood carving crowdfunding

We have set up a crowdfunder at spacehive.com, to buy a variety wood carving equipment, which will be matched pound for pound by the Lancashire Sport and Culture fund. Our goal is to generate a total of £395, but if we can raise £200 ourselves, then it will be matched by the fund and we’ll get the new equipment paid for. The equipment will be accessible to all members of LAMM, but also the public when they are attending classes at our space.

Once we have the equipment, we will put on some courses in wood carving and whittling – any donation of at least £15 will get a place in one of these classes (they will be £5-20, pay-as-you-feel, should you want to pay later).

  • Set of 6 wood carving gouges (for use with a mallet for relief carving)
  • A brass headed carving chisel for use with the above
  • set of 10 wood carving knives (for whittling and spoon making)
  • 2 “safety” wood carving knives, for use by kids or novices.
  • wood threading kit – essentially a large tap-and-die for making parts for vices and presses

Every donation, from a minimum of £2, is worthwhile and we are already up to £75 out of the £200 we need to raise ourselves! We do need at least 20 discrete donations, so small contributions are still very important!
