Latest Stuff

Seems like a long time since I posted anything. So here goes. Recently the national sandcastle competition took place in Woolacombe Bay. This is an annual event to raise money for the local Hospice.

This picture shows an attempt on the world record for the most sandcastles built in an hour, unfortunately the attempt fell a few short but there are plans to try again.

Building teams hard at work on their entries for the main competition

As you can see there were some amazing entries and lots of hard work.

Well done everyone and it was a glorious hot sunny day too!

The weekend before this, Ilfracombe held it's first ever arts festival, part of the North Devon Arts Festival, it was an amazing success and I took part in the craft fair in The Lantern, a lovely converted Methodist chapel in the High Street. I didn't make many sales but made a contact with a lady who runs a gallery at Instow, where I now have a few pieces on display.

This is a recent piece I'm quite pleased with, which is now at the Waterside Gallery Instow
