From ‘Lady Woodcarvers’ to Professionals: the Remarkable Pinwill Sisters

20 May, 2021 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Zoom talk by Dr Helen Wilson, for Devonshire Association Buildings section.

The Pinwill sisters learnt to carve as teenagers, during the restoration of their father’s church at Ermington, South Hams. They went on to establish a professional woodcarving business, Rashleigh, Pinwill & Co., with a workforce of nearly 30 carvers and joiners, establishing one of the best wood carving companies in the West Country. Their work can be found in many churches in Devon and Cornwall. Helen’s well-illustrated book on this fascinating story is excellent. See http://pinwillsisters.org

Tickets – free.
