Woodcarving Commission & Woodcarving School

Woodcarving at Sacrewell

Glyn Mould is the resident woodcarver at Sacrewell Farm.  He has been applying his considerable skill and flair to the craft of woodcarving for more than 35 years and teaching it as subject since 1984.

The beauty and appeal of his work has lead to many commissions, which include:

  • Over 120 village signs, including a special Ambridge sign to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the Archers radio programme.
  • Work for the Palace of Westminster, Burghley House, Peterborough Cathedral, Fotheringhay, various local churches and the United Kingdom Supreme Court.
  • Sculptures for the City of Culture celebrations in Glasgow in 1990.
  • A feature for the reception of the National Centre for the Deaf Blind in Peterborough.

In addition Glyn is frequently invited to speak to various local and national groups and organisations.
