A windy and changeable springtime here in south west England bringing the twigs and branches abundant with tiny green saplings and buds. Blowing around outside my stained glass studio. Seed pods and feathers flying on the cool breeze settling on wherever they chance to land. I go out painting when I am not in the studio teaching and making new work. I love this time of year as it brings new beginnings and lighter days. The busy bee makes his home and prepares his hive with a buzzing energy filled with sweet goodness.
The Lynchetts Sculpture garden in Bradford on Avon from Saturday 18th July – Sunday 26th July 2015. Glenys and George Lunt are two very generous people who open their lovely garden to the public for different events throughout the year. During the sculpture garden event you may wander peacefully through the garden Where there is a small orchard, past pecking hens and lush vegetables growing along the wall. Taking in the scents and sounds to observe sculptures and stained glass harmoniously integrated, it really is a great outdoor experience.
I will also be taking part in the peacockartstrail.co.uk on 3rd – 11th October 2015 at Firlawn lodge.
In the village of Holt on the High street, just a stones throw from the National Trust Courts garden in Holt.
Stained glass local event
Finally, I will be running a wonderful summer solstice Fathers day event at the Made in Bradford shop Lambs yard in Bradford on Avon. On Friday, Saturday and Sunday, 19th, 20th and 21st June 10am -4.30pm. We will make glass mosaics with who-ever would like to drop by and make one. Small gifts for Fathers day are ideal when made personal at minimal cost. Start at £5 , £10 or £20. All tiles, ceramic and glass provided, recycled materials include hundreds of bottle tops collected over the past 5 years ! Different coloured cements available and help is on hand as I have some gentle helpers to fill pots and stir cement. Lovely big light roomy space, come to see us and make something beautiful! I will post the flyer nearer the time or call me for more information.
Have a sunny rest of the month of May bright and breezy.
