OUR HARE HAS ARRIVED, AND HE HAS A NAME!
Introducing Mr Hedge-Springer. This gorgeous fellow arrived yesterday fresh from Sam Wilson's studio.
He features Sam's distinctive block-printing all over style in grey and yellow ochre complete with owls, foxes, hares and rural scenes.
Mr Hedge-Springer sits right at the front of our Broadway store in pride of place ready for tomorrow's Cotswold Hare Trail launch.
He will be in store until September so there's plenty of time to come and visit him. While you're in Broadway look out for 1 (possibly 2) more hares that will be on display!
DATE FOR YOUR DIARY - Saturday 25th March 2017
That's the date our hare will be appearing in our Broadway store, and the launch date for the entire Cotswold Hare Trail.
WORK IN PROGRESS!
LOVING HIS EARS
WILSON THE HARE
Well, Sam collected the 5ft tall hare from us on Wednesday 1st March and whisked it off to her home near Broadway to start decorating.
Our first glimpses of the hare show Sam block printing with good old potatoes using her classic yellow ochre tones.
Watch this space for more images and updates on our fabulous Cotswold Hare.
We’re really excited to be part of the Cotswold Hare Trail 2017 and to be given the opportunity to collaborate with local Cotswold printmaker and designer, Sam Wilson, whose work we greatly admire. To know that the proceeds from the auctioning of our large hare will be going to the local charity, National Star, makes it all the more worthwhile.
Follow the progress of our large hare on this page and our social media channels.
