Spring!

What makes you Spring?
Snowdrops bring me Spring. They come back again in our garden. Full of snowdrops!

あなたはどんな時に「春」を感じますか?
私は庭のスノードロップが咲き始めると春の訪れを感じます。
今年も庭一面にスノードロップが咲きました。

春を告げてくれたスノードロップもそろそろ終わり。次はスイセンの季節。

The garden will open in September.
Enjoy your arty time, wondering a beautiful garden and have a chat with your friends at the cafe – you surely have ‘cream and tea’ on your table.
Sounds nice doesn’t it?

Creative Pathways

Somerset Art Works organizes the program called “Creative Pathways”.

 

What is “Creative Pathways”?

 

Developed by Somerset Art Works, a professional development programme that aims to provide tailor-made support for our artist members to develop their practice and to deliver high-quality work.

Lovely ladies and their great achievements

I used to take some “Spinning, Weaving And Dyeing” classes organized by Somerset Skills and Leaning.
I had a great time with lovely ladies who had the same passion. The tutor, Mary, always shows her wide knowledge and gives great support for her students’ challenging projects.
I left her class many years ago but I popped in sometimes to have a joyful chatting with them.

Yesterday I visited their exhibition.
So many great achievements!!!
