Inspired by the Scottish initiative to raise money to put The Lost Words in every school in Scotland Hereward Corbett has decided to see if the same can be done for Gloucestershire.
When The Lost Words was born on 6th October 2017, within days, I spent a day with Hereward in a school in Bristol, my very first experience of working in a school with the book. In the evening we did an event in the most beautiful church near Tetbury. Early days. The school in Bristol had purchased a copy for their library, by the end of the day they had purchased 14 copies, one for each class.
Hereward has set up a crowd funder. To show my support I have just spent the happiest of times in conversation with paper and ink. I’m struggling to find time to paint at the moment. There seem to be so many other things that need doing, and so many letters coming from schools about Tell me a Dragon, and interviews, and I struggle to find those quiet moments to just think, draw, paint.
Made from ink and water. Thinking it needs a flash of gold, but maybe just a labyrinth on the stone?
This one is for sale for £1000 and all of the money will go direct to the crowdfunder
Also, I still have small and fragile pieces of gold leaf from stones. You can read more about these here. In the past I have asked people to contribute £32 to the Scottish Crowd funder and leave a comment here if you would like one.
Leave a comment and I will email you to ask for your address.
Otter is now sold. They do seem to swim quickly to their natural habitat of other people’s walls. If you would like a small and fragile thing leave a comment, and I will email instructions..
Thank you. Please share.
