The new creative year has started in full swing with Gill and I dressing The Art Room with all the wonderful treasures I brought in Jaipur. You can see a small selection in the photo above. We went to India at the beginning of December 2013 with Jamie and Claire from Colouricous it was an amazing and extraordinary holiday!

When classes finished in June Stewart and I went down to Dorset to do some Art Camping at Guy Mallinson’s Crafty Camping. This was to celebrate our 25th Wedding Anniversary, ‘Glamping’ in a Yurt for five days and Stewart taking a ‘Pole Lathe Course’ in the woods with seven other course members and the food was wonderful. Myself, I spent three days enjoying taking in the woodland atmosphere by making art in a Bodger’s Shelter opposite a Trout Pond, full size tepee and Woodland Shelter. Magical**** Guy and his team made us so welcome and the holiday was something else. Glamping here is so special, including the tree four poster bed, the round window in the yurt roof, watching lightning storms while in bed! and the willow tree showers, something else. We did leave twice in the five days once for our Lobster Anniversary dinner and a ‘Fossil Walk’ along Lyme Regis beach with Brandon a Geologists who really made it easy to find fossils. I found a beauty. To see my sketchbook, and some of the atmosphere of our holiday clickHERE
