Andrew Jones was born into a farming family and has spent the whole of his working life farming in west Wales. An uncle cultivated his interest in making sticks and encouraged him to enter his work in local craft shows. He makes a wide range of sticks, but it is his specialities - horn crooks and Cardigan walking sticks - which regularly earn him top honours at major competitions throughout Wales. He and his wife live near Lampeter. Co-author, Clive George had a career in the Civil Service and took early retirement in 1993 and, having bought a smallholding, went on to buy a few sheep to go with it. He owns a small flock of purebred Llanwenog sheep (named after the west Wales parish where he and his wife live) which he shows successfully in his locality. A life-long interest in stickmaking, and a fortuitous meeting, led him to collaborate in the production of this book.Présentation de l'éditeur :
