There’s no greater name in modern British craft than Rob Ryan, artist and renowned creator of intricate paper cuts. The latest exhibition of his work is at Charleston, the country home of the Bloomsbury Group and is inspired by objects within the Gallery’s own collection.
Harriet and Rosie were invited to a very special preview tour of the exhibition hosted by Rob himself (complete with party games and pass-the-parcel!)
They managed to get their hands on this incredible goody bag, filled with plenty of Rob Ryan treats. Inside you’ll find postcards, an oilcloth tote bag, mug, tile and even a mystery piece of Tatty Devine jewellery!
To win this goody bag, simply answer the following question:

Thank you for all your entries! The competition has now closed. Congratulations to our winner, Bobby! We loved your offbeat entry:
“The most interesting thing I have ever made with my beloved but overworked mitts goes to the coffin I made during my work experience at a funeral directors. A strange choice of work for a boy of 16 years but it was an enlightening experience I always remember. The coffins arrived flat packed but still required a keen understanding of carpentry to complete. I still work with wood, carving portraits but often of dead celebrities …”
Well done, Bobby!
