Peter and Chris Silvester write: "One of local artist Sheila Webster's paintings is now available as a jigsaw,
and it would be ideal as a birthday present or special gift.
"Sheila's painting of Audlem Mill, with a working narrow boat moored at the
wharf, has been made into a jigsaw. Wentworth jigsaws are high quality, and
make superb gifts. Unusually nowadays, they are wooden, and the pieces are
not the normal shapes. They vary considerably, and there are often straight
edges within the puzzle, rather than on the edges! Also, each puzzle has
several traditional "whimsy" pieces, for instance in the shape of a boat or
a duck. These puzzles are said to be rather challenging. They are
available from Audlem Mill on the canal wharf, in three different sizes.
"Sheila's painting is also available on other products, such as mugs, teapot
stands, keyrings and fridge magnets — or even, buy an original painting!
There is always a selection available at Audlem Mill."
