Guild of Rocking Horse Makers Open Day

Guild of Rocking Horse Makers Open Day

14th May 2014


Guild members at Burnby Hall Gardens taking a look at Bigger Bertie


We had a fantastic Guild open day last week with members travelling from as far as New Zealand to come and see us.  Everyone arrived at 10:30 for coffee and biscuits which was a  great opportunity to catch up with old friends and meet with like minded people.

Throughout the day our members were able to watch various demonstrations from carving, gessoing, painting, making and fitting manes and tails, making tack and also making swing irons.












The weather was perfect and we were able to lunch outside and celebrate Barbara, one of our leather workers, 60th Birthday.





After the demonstrations we went to Burnby Hall Gardens in Pocklington to see Bigger Bertie, who will be at Burnby Hall for at least 3 years.
