Working with nature is one of the great pleasures in life, especially if you can link it to learning a new creative skill or discovering a new talent.
We love this quote from The V&A and Crafts Council exhibition Power of Making in 2011 because it sums up perfectly how we feel:
“For many people, making is critical for survival. For others, it is a chosen vocation: a way of thinking, inventing and innovating. And for some it is simply a delight to be able to shape a material and say ‘I made that’. The power of making is that it fulfils each of these human needs and desires. Those whose craft and ingenuity reach the very highest levels can create amazing things. But making is something everyone can do. The knowledge of how to make – both everyday objects and highly-skilled creations – is one of humanity’s most precious resources”.
Add to this the simple joy of watching something grow and you can understand why gardening is a national passion. Why not book yourself onto a gardening course near you and enjoy… X
