We had a wonderful day on the brickfloor at the Orchard. It was looking at its best in the sunlight. The sound of metal hitting wood rang out as ten youngsters put their hearts and souls into making mallets from the cut branches on our log pile. Tony Tohill gave everyone the confidence needed to work with sharp tools, though most of the children were only six years old.
In the afternoon, the mood changed as we began to think about fairies, fairy wands and wishes, and fairy homes. Andrea had a special moment when a butterfly came and landed on the apple tree to which her fairy was imparting magic powers… breathtaking!
Many of the young crafters also turned their hand to bow and arrow making, and trying them out too!
