At the Graining Olympix to be held at Lanho, Lancs. UK on Sunday 26th Oct. we will be suggesting the creation of a new Society of Graining & Marbling craftsmen to be called the Thomas Kershaw Society.

This will be a not for profit channel of communication aiming to link Grainers & Marblers from around the world to each other.

Its main aims will be to
1. provide links,
2. promote the crafts of graining and marbling,
3. share information, pictures of work etc

If you would like to be included on the initial mailing list send me your email address under the subject heading Kershaw Society,

It is inevitable that some participants will not be online, and will only have a 'snail mail' address, so it is inevitable that some form of subscription will be necessary if the idea goes ahead.

In the meantime here's some pix to whet your appetite.
