hot hotel

WHAT’S THE BUZZ? If, like me, your passions are the sea and the forest, this is the perfect location for an escape. Tucked away in one of the most beautiful parts of the New Forest, this hotel is also just 20 minutes’ drive to the beach huts at Milford-on-Sea, or beautiful Calshot Beach. Offering the best of both worlds, you can go horse riding through the forest in the morning, then go paddleboarding in the afternoon. Originally built as a private country estate, the opulent Grade II-listed building and gardens were designed by William Henry Romaine-Walker and Augustus William Tanner in the late 19th century. The gardens went into decline after WWII but were fully restored in the late 1980s and can be enjoyed by hotel residents. There is an…

lino printing in seaton

When Victorian businessman Frederick Walton invented linoleum in 1860, he would never have imagined that his floor covering, made from linseed oil, would soon be used as an artist’s medium; a surface into which a design could be gouged, from which a reverse image is printed. Henri Matisse and Pablo Picasso popularised the art form during the 1940s and 50s. If, at school, you progressed from potato prints to lino prints, you might remember tough floor tiles that were difficult to cut.

The medium suits images with strong lines and areas of contrast, so lends itself easily to Christmas themes such as snow on conifers or starry nights. Likewise, coastal scenes work well: the glitter…
