My name is Alistair Park and I'm a professional carver who is based in Bristol, England. Wood carving has been a passion of mine for over twenty one years and I also enjoy teaching these skills to people of all ages.
You will find posts here about all kinds of things to do with carving; the work that I do, the people that I meet and the things that I see which inspire me.
Please feel free to comment on anything of interest, it'd be great to hear from you!
This blog is continued with older entries on my website's 'Latest News' page, where you can see projects and images going back to February 2009.
There's loads of images of my carvings and projects on the website, going right back to when I first started out carving. There are also, of course, a few stories. To see them or to return to the website, please click on this link

Triodos Bank's 'Cornerstone' project- YouTube video
Here are a couple of videos that are on YouTube as part of Triodos Bank's 'Cornerstone' project, with a me talking about why I carved what I did on the stone. Thanks to Faye for inviting me!
For the more health and safety conscious, I know that I'm not wearing goggles and there's no extraction etc. The position of the stone was adjusted and extraction put on just after this film was shot when the serious carving began, honest!!
