The Country Homes & Interiors Christmas show (25-27 Nov at Stonor Park, Oxfordshire) is only days away and we’re readying ourselves for a weekend of creativity, with on-stand demonstrations from the inspirational talent behind the UK’s finest boutique brands…
Have a go at pheasant feather painting (above, top), a technique created and developed by artist Clare Brownlow, having stumbled across it at her parents’ kitchen table in Norfolk. She had forgotten to pack any art supplies so, in a quiet moment, decided to take up a pheasant feather from her father’s stash and, using his fountain pen ink, put ‘quill’ to paper!
Enjoy quick-make wreath demonstrations with florist Kate Healy, founder of florist Rhubarb & Roses. She’ll be on hand with her team, demonstrating how to use dried fruits, foliage, cones and berries to create your own festive woodland foliage (above, bottom left).
Mother and daughter duo Michelle and Stephanie of Witts Design use their hand-dyed and screen-printed textiles to create the most beautiful home accessories. Together they’ll show you how to make unique baubles and wreathes (above, bottom right) – the perfect gift for family and friends.
Feeling inspired? There’s plenty more to see and do throughout the weekend, including block printing with Yateley Papers, needle felting with Mosney Mill and landscape painting with Cathy Mcclymont – phew!
