It is the beginning of the month (where is this year going?) and we have a extra special deal of the month for you. Beltane is a Gaelic festival and marks the beginning of the pastoral summer season. It is traditionally celebrated on 1st May and we wanted to join in the celebration with this wonderful Celtic offer.
Buy any two of our beautiful Celtic sets of wooden printing blocks and get to choose another set completely free of charge. The sets in this offer are all listed in the Celtic Celebration section of our website, so you can explore them in more detail there, but below are the pictures of all of the eight sets that you can choose from.
To take advantage of this offer, just head over to our Celtic Celebration page on our website and add two of these wonderful sets into your cart. In the notes section add the name of the additional set you would like for free and we will despatch the three sets you have chosen the very same day.
Enjoy choosing the sets you want they will all be wonderful on your next crafting project.
Barely glimpsed by many travellers scurrying between Mumbai (Bombay) and Rajasthan, Gujarat is an easy side-step off the well-beaten tourist trail. While the capital, Ahmedabad, retains some charm amid its chaos, the countryside holds most of this state’s many treasures. Traditional artisans in tribal villages weave, embroider, dye and print some of India’s finest textiles, and pristine parks harbour unique wildlife, including migratory birds, wild asses and the last remaining prides of Asiatic lions. For the spiritually inclined, sacred Jain and Hindu pilgrimage sites sit atop mountains that rise dramatically from vast flatlands and colourful festivals burst with a cornucopia of culture.
With much of India now becoming westernised you will find here an opportunity to see it how it was before technology. However, this area is very much on the up, with the renewed interest of buying heirloom pieces, appreciation of the hand made and the sustainability of products made with naturally and locally grown plants, Gujarat is the place to go for those who have an interest in history and tradition.
Gujarat also claims a special relationship to the life and work of Mahatma Gandhi: he was born here, he ignited the satyagraha movement from here, he made his Salt March here – and his legacy remains a vibrant part of public discourse and private lives.
If you are tempted by this holiday, there are a number of excellent videos on the Gujurat Tourism website. Click on the image below to watch the “Glimpse of Glory” video.
If you would like to join us in the wonderful region of India, then head over to our website and reserve your place now. We look forward to seeing you.
