Lovely to see you.
One of the leaflets I picked up from the library recently gave details of the newly opened Watts Studio in Compton near Guildford. Actually it opened in January, I can't think how I missed it. I love the Watts Gallery - Artists Village, celebrating the work of Victorian Artist G.F. Watts and his wife Mary. I've written a few posts about it already but I'm going to write a couple more as it is such a wonderful place so I hope you'll bear with me.
You have to go to the chapel up on the hill. It's just amazing! There's the views over the countryside, covered in frost and ice this time. There's the fabulous chapel building dedicated to 'the loving memory of all who find rest near its walls, and for the comfort and help of those to whom the sorrow of separation remains.' designed by Mary Watts with the local community helping to produce the terracotta tiles and decoration through evening classes.
Here's a few photos but if you search for Watts in the blog you'll find lots more!
Every time I visit I get bowled over by the Chapel and get carried away with the photos.
The real reason for this visit was to see the Studio though.
More to follow.
