Mendip Mind in Oil

The Mendip Mind has been immortalised in oil thanks to Kate Lynch, amazing local artist. See the picture here. It's called 'Andy blade shearing on the Mendip Hills'. See the real thing at the Somerset Rural Life Museum, Glastonbury, until the 4th July. The painting is part of the exhibition 'Wool and its creative uses by Somerset artists and craft people'

Let us know what you think.

Just to let you know of two events that are coming up. We are having a Machine shearing course on the 10th & 11th June 2009 and a Blade shearing course around the 12th 13th & 14th June.  

Running along side the blade snipping is our peg loom weaving course that allows the fleece to be woven into a thick, chunky, comfy rug while it is still hot off the sheep!  

Peg loom weaving 10 am to 4:30 pm Saturday June 13th

£40 includes materials

Home cooked Farm lunch

Nibbles & Hot drinks
