Once again, we provided the clay and fired all 1700 medals for this years Mudrunner event here on the Eastnor Castle Estate.

The event has been going from strength to strength with record numbers hauling themselves around the grueling (and very muddy) landrover experience test track.

This year 200 younger mud runners were able to take part in a Junior event.

For the second time last week my practice was recorded as moving image.

Brearley and Teviot Nursery are making a promotional DVD of all the fantastic opportunities and learning experiences they offer the children.
 
 
As well as experiencing the sheer joy of water and spinning clay, the children made honey pots, cups and a fantastic aeroplane (pictured above).

I spent the day last Monday being filmed for a short DVD to accompany my exhibition at Bilston Craft Museum.

Sarah was busy this week producing 220 clay hearts (thank heavens for heart shaped biscuit cutters!) This was not a job we would have usually taken on, but a friend in need had contacted us out of desperation with a very tight deadline. Once fired, glazed and individually named, the tiles will act as table place settings at a wedding reception.


Over two hundred Worcestershire schools are currently exhibiting artwork in the Cloisters of Worcester Cathedral. Now in it’s eleventh year, Voices and Visions displays the fruits of all the fantastic arts projects that have taken place across the county. http://www.voicesandvisions.org.uk/

As part of the celebrations, approximately twenty artists who work in schools were invited to promote their activities at the private view. Amongst the artist exhibitors and promoting her educational jewellery workshops, was our very own Gemma. Check out www.gemma-farr.co.uk

The Voices and Visions exhibition continues until the 28th of June.
