Forest of Dean. Luckily the weather was beautiful and sunny and we went for walks in Symonds Yat, which overlooks some beautiful views and Buddy could roam and make lots of new human and four legged friends.
We visited Mary Rose Young's studio for a quick look around the exuberant and colourful space, not all of her pieces are to my taste as I'm not massively into bright colours but they are undeniably beautiful, fun and creative. I did fall a little in love with the gold and white pieces that she had produced with ornate gold flowers and crown adorning teapots.
'The stunning scenery and landscape of the Forest of Dean has long been an inspirational place to many writers, artists, poets and craftspeople and the arts and crafts scene in the area is vibrant and diverse, from weavers to jewellers, potters to painters, musicians to photographers.'
