Discount Code (click here if you have been given a code to use).

I have made several sticks for film, TV and theatrical productions. The most famous is the 'magical' walking stick in the "Nanny McPhee" films, starring Emma Thompson.



Sticks have also been made for the TV shows "Emmerdale" and "Heartbeat" and numerous stage shows.

I was commissioned to make a special crook in 2011 for the newly ordained Bishop of Durham, Justin Welby. He has now been promoted to Archbishop of Canterbury - the highest office in the Church of England!

He wanted an African Rock Hyrax carving on the horn crook - a reminder of his days working in a mission in Africa. I said it would look like a mouse from a distance and I wasn't wrong!
