Happy Faces at Mires Beck!

Happy Faces at Mires Beck!

Today saw the last session of the three-Saturday-long carving workshop at Mires Beck Nursery, North Cave; everyone went home tired but happy, and reflecting on the hard work that turned a plain log into a beautifully carved sculpture!

Glan marking out the fins on his fish
Tony finishing off the waves on his seascape
Clare putting detail on the feathers
Jackie shaping the hare’s nose
Steve putting some shape in the Tomte’s hat
Arthur’s yew hare nearing completion

The best part ~ posing with the finished carvings….

And finally ~ nearly there, Steve……..and….


Of course, no visit to Mires Beck is complete without a stroll around the woodland walk ~ complete with fly agarics, looking like they’ve been lifted straight from a fairytale.

Bye Mires Beck, see you next year!
