I love these, but can never understand why they are hidden away in the money section.

It does seem a bit odd doesn't it. Question

They are excellent though and I get itchy fingers every time I browse through one. Robin tells me that the lovely oak swill baskets in the background of one or two of the shots were made by Owen Jones* - you might have seen him making one on the Victorian Farm series (which I loved!) - I would really love to be able to afford one of his weekend courses to learn how to make them. Unfortunately I've just shelled out for a wild food instructors course so that's all my treats covered for this year!

I have to admit that I get a bit damp whenever I see Robins work, I wish I had known about traditional crafts when I was younger and looking for my life.

And I know exactly what you mean about the itchy fingers, just looking makes me want to create.
