A Lovely Day Out

I took Fin and Gabs to the Rotunda Museum and The Art Gallery here in Scarborough on Sunday, I decided that they needed a little bit of culture plus I wanted to see the exhibition by Judith Kerr! It was fantastic a lot of her early work was on show and her sketches are just remarkable. The gallery had set it up really well and Fin and Gabs had a lovely time playing dress up, reading the books and drawing, I had a good look around whilst they were doing this! There was also some work on show by Angela Knipe who works in Whitby with me, she had some great little pink felt bunnies on show, she does not yet have a photo of these so I thought I would show you another great design of hers, A Teapot Brooch! Have a look at her website

The Exhibition poster for Judith Kerr and her books, The Tiger Who Came To Tea and Mog the Forgetful Cat. We had fun reading these! Gabs loved the way it was set out with a giant Tiger having his tea!!

There was also another great exhibition on and that was the work a great artist called Lindsey Tyson called "Wearable Art" Take a look at Lindseys website too!
So all in all we had a lovely day and I came away inspired, It is just really nice to see what everyone is doing and even better that Fin and Gabs enjoy looking at things too, I must say that Will however is not so keen!!
