Amber fill saps mosquito

view of oak door showing detail of the gap that is to be resin filledAnother HoBBian Hand-made door but this one has dried out a lot giving us a long crack down the middle. We used green oak and didn’t imagine it would shrink so much in the making!

Now it needs to have an amber resin strip, inlaid into this central vertical ‘gap’ and polished. The resin will start light yellow yet clear at the top of the door and slowly deepen through rice amber into golden orange towards the floor.

I’ve not worked in Resin before so if you would like to help finish this artist work contact us. We often work on the same principles as wwoof. Never heard of the wonderful world of wwoof? You should. Have a click on and open yourself up to a new experience.

Making Plans and Following Dreams

Making Plans and Following DreamsOnce a sheep farm deep in the Shropshire / Radnorshire borderlands, ‘HoBB Real’ now has another life: as an oasis of thought, real action and energy renewal.

This is the place to action your plans alongside creative thinkers. We provide the setting and make the opportunities for friends to tackle their own projects and for volunteering in and around the organic gardens.

Our moments usually include making features and special places, Qi Gong meditation, walking, designing ‘dream’ habitats, lifestyle design, wild foraging, understanding perspective and the art of balancing life.

Naturally, during private projects and the personal programmes of friends, the HoBB Project House and Gardens remain ‘reserved’ for the duration. But around this part of the World in Wales, there are many Castles, an annual Victorian Street Fest., the famous Hay-on-Wye literature festival, the Centre for Alternative Technology, National Parks, Portmerion, music weekends, stone carving courses and many Easter, Summer and Autumn Family Activity Holidays.

The HoBB is a meeting place for thoughts and a working place for realising dreams. It has grown a character and atmosphere of its own nestled within its vegetable, herb, and flower gardens, black mountain sheep, mature native trees and living structures all surrounded by the green hills and meeting waters of England and Wales.

We want International friends to benefit from a progressive time here so have a good chat with us first before you set off to visit us.
