Rams Horn & Hazel

The Stick Maker
A visit to see the beginnings of a traditional stick being crafted from rams horn with a hazel shaft.

Making a stick takes weeks of meticulous shaping and sculpting the horn to take the form of the traditional crook and sized to fit on a narrow hazel shaft.

A frequent visitor to the North Tyne and an avid country lover, Rob crafts his prize-winning sticks at his workshop in Silksworth.
