Open House exhibition As you can see from other pages of my website I make mechanical models and other weird and wonderful creations. We often have an "Open House" exhibition during August Bank Holiday weekend and in 2015 we had well over 100 visitors enthusiastically operating the models - from age 2 to 92 everyone was having fun and it was a joy to see. Lots of visitors had tea and home-made cake in our lovely garden, even though the weather wasn't brilliant all the time (especially Bank Holiday Monday). A big THANK YOU to all who came.
We are giving this year a miss as I have only managed to make two additional mechanical models. You were, however, able to see some of my models at Nevill Extravaganza on Nevill Green, Lewes in June 2016 and also at St Anne's Festival which was at St Anne's Church, Lewes in July 2016. I may also soon have some larger models on permanent display at the Bluebell Railway
Bentley Woodfair The Woodfair will be in September 2017 and I will have a selection of my models on display there - at the Bentley Woodfair at Bentley Wildfowl and Motor Museum, Halland. In previous years we have had hundreds of visitors having fun playing with the models. Thank you to all who came last year, and thanks, too, for all your encouraging comments. I can't bring all my mechanical models to the Woodfair as I have around 50 and have a few new ones every year. I am one of Bentley Wildlife Carvers so look out for our exhibition in the Education Room on the left as you come in. The Woodfair is a great day out with lots of interesting stalls and displays, plus the wildfowl and Motor Museum. Check out their website www.bentley.org.uk
I belong to a group called Bentley Wildlife Carvers (visit our website on www.bentleywildlifecarvers.uk) and we meet in the Education block at Bentley once a month to sit and whittle and swap tips. We have our room open for the Woodfair (just behind the tea room) with a display of beautifully carved and painted ducks and birds. We are a bit "tucked-away" as we are not in the main field and I know that some people have difficulty finding us. Come and see us at the Woodfair.- read about Bentley and the Woodfair on www.bentley.org.uk

Here is a video of a marble run which is small so has ball bearings instead of marbles. Otherwise it would have been called Don't lose your Marbles! Other videos can be seen by clicking HERE
