Well, we had brilliant day in the woods on Sunday, despite me having no feeling in my frozen feet until lunchtime!
The Surrey Hills Wood Fair is a great big friendly affair, full of families, happy dogs and beardy men whittling things. The sun shone all day too- thank goodness it didn't take place one day later during the current pouring rain, or I might never have thawed my feet out again!
You could buy a pumpkin,
or go on a carriage ride with a ukulele band on board...
or find a house for the fairies at the bottom of your garden.
There was also every kind of dog you could think of, wonderful subjects for a little monoprinting demonstration.
I talked to a lot of lovely people who put their names on my list of interested candidates for art workshop days next spring and summer. The workshops are planned to take place in the barn here, where Mervyn of Surrey Hills Green Wood Works holds courses on pole lathe turning and green wood furniture making.
The art days should be fun, with inspiration provided by the beautiful surroundings. I'm looking forward to them!
