Nynehead Court’s gracious gardens and All Saint’s Church in its grounds provided an ideal setting for a Craft Fayre on Saturday 19 August.
Stalls selling crafts made locally included decorative items, fabrics, jewellery, silk painted scarves, paintings and photography and Nynehead stables were open for a clay workshop. The church itself showcased some impressive works of embroidery and quilt-making.
All proceeds went to Somerton-based Art Care Education, a charity which aims to promote art and creative activity by providing a platform to artists and makers. It arranges creative activities and courses for all ages and abilities and delivers creative projects focusing on community health and wellbeing.
Nynehead stables will be the venue for three craft workshops during the autumn:
– Stone-carving for beginners on 9 September from 10am to 4pm
– Stained glass for beginners on Tuesday 26 September from 10 to 4pm
– Mosaic workshop for beginners on Wednesday 4 October from 10am to 4pm
