'I had the most wonderful day. You should see me still beaming as I think of it. Spending a day outdoors, sitting on and working with wood in completely natural surroundings accompanied by birdsong was an absolute tonic. ... My thanks to Will, our warm-hearted tutor, who allowed us to take the creative lead, but gave a helping hand whenever it was wanted or needed.'  MR 11.3.18
