There are no restrictions as to size, shape or style. One or more pieces of green wood sourced from the British Isles should be used, and the pieces turned on a pole lathe. The finish should be tooled, with no sanding materials used. Carving, painting or decorating using any applied finish is encouraged. Fractal burning may not be used. All work must be by the competitor.
Competitors may enter up to two different pieces in this category, none of which should have been entered in any other Company competition.
Piece(s) may be offered for sale at the exhibition.
First prize £400, second prize of £200 and third prize of £100.
No competitor will be awarded more than one prize in any one category.
