I’ve been enjoying the last of the last of the summer sun this week, busying away in the workshop with the door open, preparing for the cooler autumn days to start.
As well as working on new stock for upcoming fairs, I have also enjoyed making some one-off custom pieces for customers. Although I love receiving all orders, custom requests are my favourite because I know a specific piece is being made especially for someone which makes it even more special.
Alongside keeping busy out in the workshop this week I have also been on a lovely (but super long) bike ride where I was able to view lots of stunning countryside. The bike ride started along a local canal with the intention of stopping off at a pub for a drink and then cycling back, which didn’t quite go to plan…
As we arrived so far at the end of the canal we had to change direction and go over a bridge, following what we thought was the direction to the next village, until we realised we had turned the wrong way about 5 miles in the wrong direction! But it was good fun finding a different route home.
A lot of the inspiration for my work comes from trees, so it was interesting to climb the ‘tree top walk’ in Salcey Forest last weekend. It was a little scary looking down but I managed to capture a few good photographs.
Hope you’ve had a good week!
