Churches of the United Benefice of Puttenham, Wanborough, Seale & Sands

Surrey, England

This was a fundraising project for the group of small historic village churches in my area. I was commissioned to design the tea towel (a ubiquitous British item!) and created the wildlife border illustrations. Another local man had made sketches of each of the four churches.

The illustrations were hand drawn in pen and ink.
