In June this year my dad and I went on holiday to the Manor House Hotel in Devon. It’s a hotel that offers a brilliant range of crafts as well as other activities like shooting, falconry (dad loved that one!!), and the usual hotel facilities. We went for 4 activity days (we went there Sunday and came home Friday), and had a great time! And even with many my allergies, the food was lovely!!
Anyway, during my stay I did as many crafty activities as I could – had to make the most of the time, especially as it meant I got a head-start on learning some new crafty skills for the year!!
So, here’s what I did during my stay there:
Monday – glass engraving & glass enamelling
Tuesday – pottery (stage 1) (spent the afternoon with Yaris, my assistance dog)
Wednesday – pottery (stage 2) (went out to Plymouth for the afternoon with dad and Yaris)
Thursday – porcelain / china painting & glass painting
By the time I came home on Friday I had made an engraved tankard for my dad, a jewellery set for my friend Danielle, a piggy bank, a fairy for my friend Karen, an owl for my granny, a teapot for my sister, and two plates and two glasses for me! I’ve also brought home two cards with teabag-folding papers and had a brief instruction session on that too. Pretty full week huh? Pictures are below as usual, hope you like them!
