E just loves Sarah’s studio and enjoyed looking at, and talking to Sarah about, different pieces there
and how to make shapes and marks on the stone.
She worked with a chisel and a mallet to make a carving of a shark leaping up over the edge of the piece of stone and then did some
Stone carving is hard work for a 6 year old but she worked for about 45 mins before needing a break.
She discovered that when you come across a fossilised shell in the stone the stone is harder to work.
We went down to sea to look at the rocks that had been broken by the storms and found fossils in them.
and found a warm sunny ledge to have our picnic lunch on and watch the fishermen
and do some knitting – the crocheted blanket was great charity shop find which lives at the hut and the knitting will be a jacket for Miss E.
It was a really special creative time at Granny’s Hut
Miss E also worked with clay – pictures of her creations to follow in another post.
