Carrots on a windy day

DJG_eventYesterday Sue Edkins and I held a drop-in workshop at Diamond Jubilee Gardens, Twickenham – we invited passers-by and local families to come along and make a motif, inspired by one of our WW1 themes, to form a decorative border for the work we are making to go in The Frame in the park.

We had a good flow of lovely participants throughout the session, with two boys in particular being so keen they dashed off to fetch their cousins and stayed for ages making radishes, medicine bottles, and even a locket that opened. The only problem was the fresh breeze sweeping in off the river and attempting to snatch away freshly-made carrots…

Many thanks to Ashley for helping on the day, and to Jagon for helping move all the equipment from Orleans House and back into the cellar at the end of the day.
