A Grand Day Out

The other day we had the pleasure of visiting Bourton-on-the-Water on a trip with the Uni. Located in the Cotswolds, the place is filled with pretty stone cottages and surrounded by green landscapes. I grew up in the Cotswolds and so returning to them from Cardiff was a lot like going home.

The main purpose of the trip was to see the model village; a one-ninth scale replica of Bourton-on-the-Water. Not only was it inspiring for the stop-motion students to see the models, but it was great for everyone to draw from. Equally it was amusing to see 'model-ception' as there is a model of the model village within the model village!

Being in the UK however, the weather decided to be temperamental and so there was only a limited amount of drawing that we could do between downpours. Ah well, we had a great time, enjoyed the pub and came back to Cardiff in high spirits!
