The wonderful sculpture exhibition at Newport House near Kington, Herefordshire has been
extended to the 29th October. It is open every day of the week 10am - 5pm.
Entrance is £5 for adults; children and students are free.

It showcases 40 regional, national and international makers in the most gorgeous gardens.
More info at: www.outofnature.org.uk

All profits from sales go the the Cart Shed, a unique green woodworking project.

Enjoy a holiday in a beautiful part of Herefordshire, learning the skills of working unseasoned timber with handtools to create something unique for your own home or garden.

I offer two to nine day courses in Green Woodwork and Chairmaking for novices,
amateurs and experienced craftspeople.

I teach the whole range of greenwood crafts; from pole lathe turned windsor chairs, ladder back chairs with varied seating, contemporary and free form sculptural pieces to an ever expanding range of other projects.
