Colin aka the Amberley Bodger
Colin is a volunteer (16+ years) at Amberley Museum near Arundel, in West Sussex. He demonstrates and teaches heritage crafts. In particular the use of the traditional Polelathe. This piece of historic equipment has been in use for very many decades. It was introduced into this country around the period of the invasion of the Saxons. More recently it was used by the 'Bodgers' on the Chilterns. Who would turn out legs and spreaders for the local furniture/chair making industry. In particular for Windsor chairs.
The term bodger is an old english word, it is believed, to descibe an ocupation that makes part of a product before handing over to another individual for more work or completion. Very much like on a production line.
FOR SALE and courses etc.
