Lady birds from St James!

If you can, pop into Stewarts to see the lovely display of children's work from our school project, Little Green Fingers. Stewarts landscaping supplied the pebbles for painting which look great! I love the pebble lady birds in the artificial grass!

Felted flower meadows for Walford Mill Craft Centre



This beautiful felt flower meadow was created by the children of St James Primary, Gaunts Common, Wimborne. Stewarts Garden Centre funded both the materials and the workshop artist facilitator, Nina Squire, as part of their art education program, Little Green Fingers, which aims to educate children in the benefit of encouraging wildlife and improve our environment through growing. The finished felt panel has been donated to Walford Mill Craft Centre to raise valuable funds for their new building project. It will auctioned at the 'Silver' exhibition from June 25th- July 31st, please visit www.walfordmillcrafts.co.uk for more information

Drawing cocker spaniels in the sunshine!

Its not bad working outside in this weather, makes up for hail and rain last time! Hey ho!
I liked my photo but not the metal gate so trying to create a wooden, more aesthetic one! What do you think so far?

We've been working with local guide groups to create felted wall hangings. It was a great team activity and the kids loved the felt flower meadows and all wanted to do some more!

Felted panels at St Ives First School

We made fabulous felted flower panels after looking at pictures of the flower meadow designed by Stewarts Garden Centre at the New Forest Show for inspiration. The kids and teachers learnt a new skill and these panels will be a great display when they dry.
