Living Heritage Events have been supporting chainsaw carving at all our shows for many years now. We look forward to hosting the 14th English Open Chainsaw Carving Competition at Cheshire Game and Country Fair this August, a month before Wiltshire Show
Visit our designated chainsaw carving area at Wiltshire Game and Country Fair where our team of carvers will be working to produce sculptures over the weekend. Each piece is carved from reclaimed timber from a number of sustainable sources throughout England. The wood is hand selected from sawmills, salvage, tree surgery and garden clearance specialists for its character, colour and suitability for carving.
Also in the designated arena there will be three times daily speed carves. This gives the carvers just thirty minutes to create something beautiful with only a log and a chainsaw. You will be amazed! These carvings will be auctioned off immediately to the highest bidder.
Featured in our Chainsaw Carving Arena at Wiltshire Game and Country Fair:
Chris has been working in wood for most of his life. As a small boy sitting on the beach, bored on holiday, he would carve model aeroplanes from discarded lollipop sticks. Now he carves everything from spoons and furniture to full size dragons and people. From his workshop in Caerleon Chris creates chainsaw carvings, traditional wood sculptures, steel structures and silver-smithing. He often combines a number of different materials in his work. He is
influenced by organic shapes, Celtic myths and legends, animals, bodies, and spirals
