Well I’d like to say we are enjoying lovely long August days dipping our toes into the water and drinking Pina Coladas but this being Devon and the school holidays, summer is doing what it normally does and its either raining or really windy here! But we are not discouraged its still beautiful in Cove whatever the weather! I hate to mention autumn but the leaves are definitely starting to change colour here, so with that in mind if you are thinking of the new term ahead and are wondering whether to join a class at night school or learn a new skill I will be offering 1 to 1 tuition in copper foiling this autumn. If you’ve fancied having a go I will show you how to cut glass and then assemble a panel or large sun catcher to take home with you. Get in touch for a chat or email for details.
Talking of copper foiling I recently made a snowdrop for a shepherds hut. The very nice people I made it for have sent me the images of it fitted in and it looks fantastic. They are a company called ‘Dods of London’ and they will have a stand at the National Gardening Show at the Bath and West Showground in September if you want to have a look at it. They restore shepherds huts and gypsy caravans to a very high standard and I want one! Will link onto their site when its up and running but here is what they look like below!
