Waterperry Gardens, Oxfordshire.

I was recently commissioned to build this gorgeous little pear on site at the Waterperry Gardens in Oxfordshire. This is home to the well known Art in Action festival where some of the UKs finest makers get together for a giant exhibition .

The pear stands proud opposite Pear Tree Restaurant, so parents can indulge in their fabulous home made cakes and pies, of which I can recommend the apple pie an all time favourite of mine mmm......pie... whilst the children of course can play in the pear tunnel!

During it's construction I ran workshops sharing the weaving with visitors to the garden, then on day two I was fully absorbed in the calming surroundings weaving until nightfall.
The evening before the garden hosted an outdoor play of Wind in the Willows, next year it's The Railway Chidren, I'm booking early!

Hey! Just seen your pear at RHS Wisley and am smitten! Will be paying a visit to Waterperry Gardens to see this one too (Rebeka @ www.owlsandpears.com).
