Art Circle Christmas at Lytham Library...

A special thank you to Booths who unwittingly supplied the materials.  Their Christmas catalogues are beautifully produced and are printed on paper perfect for making an assortment of trees and snowflakes.

The work is on display in the backroom of Lytham Library until 12th night.  
Pop in to see it next Wed and join in our last session of the year (11 - 12.30pm).

Keep your catalogue after you've placed your order.  Instructions on how to make your own trees and snowflakes will be posted soon. 

Poem included in the work is below.

Ash Wood 
Beech wood fires are bright and clear if the logs are kept a year.
Chestnut's only good they say if for long it's lain away.
But Ash, new or old is fit for a queen with a crown of gold.

Birch and fir logs burn too fast, blaze up bright but do not last.
And by Ireland it is said Hawthorn bakes the sweetest bread.
Elm wood burns like churchyard mould even the very flames are cold.
But Ash green or Ash brown is fit for a queen with a golden crown.

Poplar gives off bitter smoke, fills your eyes and makes you choke!
Apple wood will scent your room with an incense-like perfume.
Oaken logs if dry and old keep away the winter's cold.

But Ash wet or Ash dry - a king can warm his cockles by.
