Can it really be a year since I was here in this most magical textile heaven, Cowslip workshop Cornwall. I have bought my family with me and am staying in accommodation close by. The venue on a farm surrounded by old farm building , gardens, animals and views to die for and an amazing organic cafe brought tears to my daughters eyes as they did mine when I first came, Jo the owners is just the biggest added bonus ever!
The workshop is divine where i have twelve students beavering away fed and watered with amazing food throughout the day . Even though I am teaching and this is called work its like being on a creative holiday. Today we made wine glass lampshades, robins, shaggy wreaths. My students have been sent home with work and tomorrow we will be decorating our garland with hearts, reindeer -and snowman .
This coming weekend there will be a massive Xmas fair here with wonderful stalls, antiques, textiles and gifts if you are around do come by.
