I am sure that many of us had a Dad or Uncle that had a love of the carving hobby even a friend of a friend who might well have had a wood turning lathe in their workshop.The worrying fact is that in this day and age of ever expanding technology many old traditional crafts are struggling to survive in the modern age we live in.
Why you may Ask?
Well as I alluded to with a generation that loves phones and tablets there hardly seems room or interest for these traditional crafts.Many of the younger generation would have never of hear of these crafts and skills never knowing of their existence.Many of these crafts date back many 100's of years.
Should We bother Saving Traditional Crafts?
Well just like a Tudor building these crafts have lasted through the ages, and it should be considered of great importance as part of our heritage. and so very important for younger generations to learn about as their ancestors could well have plied their trade in these highly skilled wood carving crafts.
The Future of Traditional Crafts!
Well sadly many Crafts people have pasted away leaving their skills lost in time, this is why it is so important for skills and knowledge to be passed on, without this the next generations will never again see these skills ever again, only in an ebook or website.
