Different types of ships came together in Hut 196 tonight, courtesy of hut owner Anna and paper artist Beth.

Three sailing ships were the centrepiece of the installation, beautifully crafted from single sheets of card with their sales billowing in the wind.

Beneath these, roaming across the golden sands were three ships of the desert, otherwise known as camels, the traditional transport of the wise men who followed the star to give the infant Jesus their gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh.  

It was a pretty cold night but the chill was taken off by a fire burning in a brazier outside the hut.

Alongside all of this a choir sang four part harmony songs at various points throughout the evening.

The next hut is being created by the Church of the Good Shepherd on Dyke Road and is number 264.
