Highnam Court Spring Fair 2011

12 May, 2011 – 4:08 pm

Thank-you to everyone who came and supported me at this years event!

My carving from last year raised £120 for The Pied Piper Appeal and Gloucester Cathedral. The auction was drawn on the Saturday and the lucky winners were very proud to win my Gargoyle!

Over the whole weekend I carved a Green Man in a piece of Fish-Hill limestone, very hard and shelly!!

Saturday saw a rather cloudy day, but people came out to enjoy all the fair had to offer. I was able to get on with my carving very well and set myself up to finish him on the Sunday. Deadline was 4pm on Sunday when the raffle was drawn for this years carving.

Sunday brought sunshine and plenty of people, I was able to wheel my banker outside and carve in full few of everyone! We managed to raise £232 for the charities from the sale of raffle tickets for my Green Man, and the lady who won him was incredibly excited-especially as his Great Grandfather was a stonemason!

I am very proud of my carving and as with all my pieces I will miss him!!!
