Tim Taylor - Stick Maker
I was born in Northumberland but moved with work to Yorkshire where I lived for 35 years. I worked in agriculture and my heart has always been in the countryside. After taking early retirement, I returned to Northumberland three years ago
I started making sticks about six years ago. I am a member of both the British Stickmakers Guild and the Border Stickdressers Association. The Hazel used in my sticks is collected by me from a friend’s farm in the North Tyne Valley.
