Lydiard House and Park 2011

Our June meeting took place at Lydiard as planned and we enjoyed the morning in glorious sunshine exploring the walled garden and park for recording ideas by drawing or taking photos, in the hope of inspiring our next Exhibition for Lydiard called " Traditions".

Many of us also visited the Church, and despite having drawn and taken photos before, we found new ideas and inspirations this time

After a wonderful lunch in the new tearooms or in the " hut" which we hired for the day.. we went into the house to meet Sophie the curator. Sophie treated us to a wonderful talk and explanation about the textiles in the house, and allowed us to handle some of the pieces using white gloves of course.

This photo is of the black shawl. In our July meeting we will be looking at our Lydiard photos, sketches and inspirations and hopefully starting our sketchbooks of ideas.
