Seems like ages since I’ve written a blog.
With a GCSE Graphic Art project due in this week and January mock exams fast approaching I don’t seem to have much time.
A couple of weeks ago I went to an evening of ‘Lost Words’ in aid of Sobell House, Oxford at the Sheldonian Theatre. I’d been to The Lost Words evening with Jackie Morris and Robert Macfarlane before but I wasn’t quite ready for the evening ahead.
On top of the beautiful drawings and paintings from the very talented Jackie Morris and Spells from equally talented, Robert Macfarlane, the evening was hosted by Dr Rachel Clarke.
Between art, spells, chatting and music a number of people spoke about how Sobell House had helped them and their families. By the end of the evening I don’t think there was a dry eye in the whole building.
I’m a bit late blogging about the evening and quite a few people have beaten me to it including one of the guest speakers Mr Ed Finch
Mr Finch’s wife, Diane, had stayed at Sobell house before her death and her song she record there was one of the most moving parts of the evening. If you have a moment, please read Mr Finch’s blog Ed Finch
