FABULOUS ESCAPISM

Nick and Cressida have just returned from spending a magical time in Warwickshire. Over half term we were lucky to find space at Talton Mill – a very special place set up and run by ex AHA Student Olivia Watson (1991). She has converted the walled Garden of her parent’s house into the most divine campsite with yurts and tipis. Such fun was had that our children declared it “the best holiday ever”.

PIETRA DURE – THOMAS GREENAWAY AHA ALUMNI

We have just heard from Thomas Greenaway who came with us on a Gap Year Course in 2004.

Thomas is now a traditionally trained craftsman in the art of Florentine Pietre Dure and has started his own business making bespoke table tops, panels, boxes, paperweights and other items.  He is also able to carry out restoration work.

We are bowled over by the level of skill evident in his work and the beauty of the objects he creates.  It is worth taking a look at his website www.greenawaymosaics.com to see his remarkable art.

“My huge thanks to AHA as during the course in 2004 I first discovered this art and it’s now my passion!” Thomas Greenaway AHA Alumni
