Last week I held an all day workshop in Eynsham, one of our old home villages, at the Queen's Head pub. My favourite pub ever, but today we were not here for beer, but to make little houses. There was plenty of chat as the work began, fueled by home made shortbread.
Breaking at one for lunch, Jackie the landlady had laid on little homebaked tartlets and salad, as the day was so hot.
Lovely Alice brought us cones of fresh mango sorbet.
And then back to work for a while...
...until afternoon tea, which naturally was scones with jam and cream. Or fruit, if you preferred.
It may sound as if we spent the entire day scoffing, but by the end of a five hour class, every one had made a super house and someone had even made a Christmas pudding. I'm planning a similar workshop at the Queen's Head in September, so if you are interested in pre-booking a place, drop me an email and I'll contact you when the date if confirmed,
