Wild Folk: Tales from the Stones

By Jackie Morris and Tamsin Abbott

An exquisite collection of shape-shifting tales from two magical artist-storytellers.

Tuesday, 24 January 2023

Hello from Herefordshire

So today was one of those days where I was blessed with the vision of a hare whilst out on my walk. An actual hare not just a vision in my mind! On days like this where the Wild Folk cross paths with us we walk a little lighter and the things that trouble us may recede whilst dreams come to the fore. When I arrived back at my workshop I made this little film of introduction and thanks. Thank you all for joining us and beginning to grow this new Wild Folk community

I do love Tamsin's workshop. The colour and light in it and the way the eye dances from treasure to treasure. And the stuffed sparrowhawk, a victim of error, so beautiful, so watchful. The view from the door is beautiful too.

Oh fabulous workshop tour. Thank you for sharing your space with us. Perhaps instead of feeling a weight of expectation from us you could imagine us a soft blanket of support? If you enjoy the process, we will certainly enjoy the outcome. Hope it is an exciting and exhilarating projec5 for you with lots of opportunities for fun and play.

Hi everyone, so lovely to be able to share my space with you and thank you all for the great comments and camaraderie. And Jo Valentine, I am snuggling in to that comforting blanket of support right now. I am definitely enjoying the process. January is always a bit of a sticky time getting on with the flow of work but this is the first year I haven’t been totally overwhelmed by the blues so must be in a large part to this feeling of community. ☺️

Hello!
What a delightful tour of your studio! Thank you. We have a fox living under our driveway in a culvert. We are so fortunate to interact with Fox most days from a distance. Hope you have a sunny day also. Mollie and Greg Alberta Canada ❤️

Tamsin, thank you for that lovely introduction to your special work space. I can see why you love being in there so much. I love what you do and I want you to enjoy the process of this alchemical book with Jackie - no expectations or burden - just enjoy it and be you and know you are supported in every way on the path - the inspirations and wild folk will come.... Its a privilege to share the journey with you both.

What a lovely introduction, thank you. Someone above has suggested that you think of us as a support group, willing you forward, rather than feeling the weight of expectation. Lucky us, being able to share in this creative project!
