Crafted Pens – Neil Farrer
All of our fountain pens, rollerball pens and ballpoint pens plus a few mechanical pencils are all handmade from over 240 exotic and domestic woods in our workshop in Bedfordshire, England.
Our pens make ideal gifts for Birthdays, Christmas, Weddings, Anniversaries, Mothers/Fathers day and Retirement. They are also excellent pens for personal use. Each pen comes in a presentation box made from recycled materials with gold print and make a lovely gift for someone…….. or yourself.
Magnetism is the very foundation of life on earth. The human body has developed over millions of years within a magnetic field. Our body is “electric”, it resonates within a frequency range and is constantly being altered by poor diet, injury, illness, accidents and the possible overexposure to electromagnetic fields so it makes sense to use magnetic therapy to re-balance our body’s natural healing mechanism.
Magnetic therapy products can help to readdress this imbalance by allowing the body to repair itself, from within by either applying powerful magnetic fields to a problem area or by exposing the iron atoms in blood to a Magnetic Field to aid and improve circulation to the whole body.
The Event Gallery Fine Art – K a y J o h n s – artist in residence!
Whether it be a mouse, hare, pheasant, cat, dog or best in show bull, Kay is in her element whilst painting wildlife. Kay is probably the best known livestock artist in the country. Kay is also well known for her hare, equestrian, canine and British wildlife art, both originals and prints.
Stokes of England – Blacksmith
Visit the blacksmiths tent, bringing an insight into this fascinating and very traditional English craft. Stokes Blacksmiths are at all of our shows. It is a long standing family business, now run by Chris Stokes, who has been a blacksmith for over thirty years.
He says he loves his work because of the creativity involved; the knowledge that he is leaving a legacy in his work that will last for many many years into the future and that fact that he never knows who his next customer will be. You can even have a go too! Make an original hook or keyring and get involved!
