Judith Letchford (GradDip Arts: Carving) won first place and Jo Grogan (BA Hons: Woodcarving and Gilding) won second place at the Worshipful Company of Joiners & Ceilers’ Company annual woodcarving competition, which took place on Saturday 22 April.

The competition is open to participants who have recently or nearly completed their training in joinery and woodcarving.

Competitors are required to finish a set piece of work within nine hours which demonstrates “an ability to carry out woodcarving commissions to good commercial standards, with emphasis on the interpretation of drawings, drawing out of work and the skilled use of hand tools”.
