Delightful weekend

What an absolute delight it was to open our home, for the Artists at Home weekend, to the wonderfully charming crowd who came to visit over the weekend. We had a wide range of ages from tiny toddlers, through boisterous boys and fairy-like girls, to the rather slower and more sedate and distinguished individuals. Some were just popping in on their way back from the park, whilst others were in serious artist visiting mode, be-helmeted and bicycled.
Our home was transformed into a tranquil trove of printed fancies with Jonathan's wood engravings the star attraction. The displays of Starch Green goodies set the tone nicely. Jonathan was in the shed demonstrating the art of wood engraving to enraptured crowds and putting the press though its paces.
