SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT- Waterperry Gardens Is To Be The Venue For Our All Day Workshop!

We are delighted to announce that Waterperry Gardens in Oxfordshire is to be the venue for our all day workshop on Sunday March 25th 2012.

This all day workshop will take place in the classroom block at Waterperry and will start at 10.30am and finish at 4.30pm. We will be making a unique quirky model of an old fashioned shed and contents. This will not be your old common or garden shed......oh no siree......think old, rusty, well-weathered with oodles of character! The techniques and materials used in this project will be different again from previous workshops eg. the roof will be constructed in such a way that it will take on the appearance of an old rusty corrugated metal roof!
The little shed will of course be set in another part of the back garden of our imaginary old cottage - so you will have to tackle some weeds as well! This project will stand alone or butt onto one of the previous gardens in our workshop series or join on to your existing dolls house - as it is offered in both 1/12th and 1/24th scales.

BOOKING IS NOW OPEN......places are limited so early booking is adviseable to avoid disappointment. A booking form can be downloaded from the website or alternatively please contact either of us (see Contact Details on the website).

WATERPERRY GARDENS is tucked away in Oxfordshire, a tranquil haven for garden lovers everywhere! It is easily accessible from the M40.
It was once the home of a Horticultural College For Ladies, founded in the 1930s by Beatrix Havergal and is steeped in history. It continues to offer horticulture and arts and crafts courses and the world famous beautiful gardens are breathtaking! Below you can see some photos that Robin took last year on one of her many visits.
Visitors do have to pay a fee to view the wonderful gardens, but is well worth it!

The rest of the estate is freely open to the public and you will be able to visit the Saxon Church, Garden Centre, Arts & Crafts Gallery, Barn Gift Shop, Museum Of Country Life and The Pear Tree Teashop!
So well worth a visit in it's own right.

We hope you can come and join us for the day and for full details, please see the website.
