Art Week testimonial

“Congratulations on all aspects of Somerset Art Weeks, the guide is a work of art in itself! We could write pages about our visits and the lovely people we met; how much we learned about techniques and processes and our lovely Somerset towns, villages and countryside. Thank you for giving us so much.”
