In the event Eddie, Peter, Kay and Sean helped get those plan chest drawers carried right up to the top of the studio. Plus the drawings and paintings in them, of course. I worked at the top, beeswaxing the inside of the chests so the drawers ran smoothly. So, total delight at getting a difficult job done, and with a light touch and good humour too.
Then, at the same time, a party of friends, old friends, and their friends turned up and spent a while investigating the studio. Everyone bought a work and left delighted. So - a good day all round.
