Stewart and I spent five wonderful days last week in Dorset at 'Crafty Camping'. Which is run by Guy Mallinson. It is a luxury campsite with yurts, a tipee and bell tents in a magical woodland. Stewart throughly enjoyed the two day pole lathing course with Guy and Adam and seven other course members. I was lucky enough to take my sketchbook and work in The Bodgers Shelter by the trout pond opposite the tipee and then on Saturday worked in the Woodland workshop while Stewart continued working with wood and enjoying the outdoor life. Dudley the dog and Tommy the cat helps too! Vicky and her fabulous team created wonderful food for the lunches and I have come to the idea that Vicky is a Goddess, who creates amazing sticky chocolate puddings! Thank you so much to Guy and your woodland team for making our 25th Anniversary holiday a special one.
