Day Six, 21 April 2013

 Workshop day offers a chance to leave travel behind for one day and be a student. Elaine Lindsay, straw artist extrordinaire introduces the group to traditional straw work and shows them examples of her work that appears as fashion accessories during London fasion week and atop local wedding cakes.    We end the day with a house concert with music from Gaye Anthony.

Gaye Anthony has relaunched her solo folk music career after many years of singing herring fishing and other maritime songs with G& T. She also teaches us local dialect such as the answer to "how are you?"  Fit like!
