Goodbye Foxes









Here are my two one year old foxes leaving home for good heading to Jersey and Jersey Live. This is a rite of passage that runs in the family. It's what I did back in the day. Bon voyage foxies.

Willow sheep sale



Last week and I mean injust one week saw a bit of an unexpected clear out of sculptures that were filling up the barn and shed...two sheep, a giant ball, half a willow woman and two of my big foxes...now some space gained sooo what do you think I will go and do with it....Ideas, ideas ideas. Ps. They all went to good homes. Baa, baa!

Willow Weaving Workshop





















Here are a few photos of the Willow Weaving Workshop I ran at the Wildlife Centre, Teifi Marshes on 11th August. 55 participants in 5 hours plus a few mums and dads and grandparents busied themselves making huge willow dragonflies. So much concentration and creativity and quiet from a room full of young energetic types. Who would have thought it posible. Some days I just love my job.

Cambridge Folk Festival 2011



































Cambridge Folk Festival was hot, hot, hot. Set in the very beautiful Cherry Hinton Hall Park it's majesty and beauty reflected and enhanced by the musical genious of those present and too by the discerning people who choose to be there.
I must say I am still glowing from the heat, brightness and brilliance of Richard Thompson, Pentangle, Ms Marling.....et all. Mourning the performances I had to miss because I was running workshops...Justin Townes Earle hope he comes and tours... It was a pleasure and the workshops where popular and ran over and ran out of reeds so the final one was recycling the leftovers of the others.
