Glass Workshop

I had the lovely Jenny Ayrton run the wire sculpting part of her glass casting workshop in my Studio this weekend, Giorgia one of the participants from further afield stayed over night before they finished their sculptures at Teign Valley Glass. Can't wait to see the finished work 

Hopefully she will run the course again later in the year !

Granite Tramway Walk

Have I mentioned before that you can walk along the Granite Tramway that runs behind my house ? 
The Granite tram way starts up at Haytor , we ran a community walk a couple of weekends ago to do the walk from Haytor to Pottery Pond and did car shares 
If you are a keen walker I am happy to run you to Haytor so that you can walk back down without having to leave a car at the top, where it can get quite busy on a lovely day. 

It is also part of the longer Templar Way which goes from Haytor to Teignmouth which is only possible to walk on the bits along the estuary when the tide is out!
