Chainsaw Carving Demonstrations
Home to the UK's only static chainsaw carving pitch, visitors can take in the breath taking creations carved by our talented team of onsite carvers.
You can even commission your own piece of artwork at the same time!
Clayton Ryder took up carving 9 years ago after being made redundant. He has carved with some of the best carvers in the country and the world, and has carved at all the top UK carving events, as well as on TV shows, including Flog It.
Clayton's sculptures have been purchased by well-known people, including Bob Geldof, Roger Whittaker and Paul Martin, and he has carved everything, from 3in mice to 8m long dragons.
For more information or to request a commission, please contact Clayton on: 07900 286200 or at the Centre on: 01594 822170.
