Fields, flowers and fruit
A day of art and picnics
Dove Valley Centre, Staffordshire
Tuesday 4th September
Join the Stone and Water team at the Dove Valley Centre for a relaxed session making the most of late summer sunshine (we hope!)
early for apples maybe…
At this beautiful setting in the Upper Dove Valley, there will be time to walk if you want to, and wander if you will, to look at flowers, hope for butterflies, watch the ravens wheeling overhead, examine the apples ripening in the orchard and draw, write, scribble, print or sew the things you have discovered.
There will be artists to help but this will be a relaxed day without lots of formal teaching. Bring a picnic and spend a day on the farm.
butterflies still on the nettles?
