Meet the Author

Andrew Jones makes a wide range of sticks. An uncle cultivated his interest in making sticks and encouraged him to enter his work in local craft shows. He lives near Lampeter.

Clive George's life-long interest in stickmaking and a fortuitous meeting, led him to collaborate in the production of this book.
