"I am writing to you to thank you for organising the Harp on Wight festival. I came over from the main land and made a harp in 6 days, it was amazing. I am often on the Island so it was great to find something so exciting happening there. I promised to send you some photos, I have them here. I also took photos of the whole process of making a harp and will send them too.
The course was excellent and Sylvestre did an outstanding job getting everyone to make a harp in 6 days. What was most amazing is that every one produced a very good instrument in such a short time. Three of us on the course have done a lot of craft work before however three of the people there had not, and yet they all achieved success.
It has been good to add the harp to the list of instruments I have at home and I am enjoying learning how to play it. "
