Hackwood Festival

Yesterday I visited the Hackwood Art Festival, which is in about its third year. I have never managed to get there before which is bad as it is literally round the corner from me. As you can see the setting is beautiful, and the work was of a high standard. I was particularly interested in the print room and a demonstration of paper casting.
If I could have taken something home it might well have been the life size giraffe or the tortoise, way bigger than life size with the shiny metal scales of its shell catching the sunlight - I would have needed to take their garden home as well to fit them in.

I have just received the first copy of the thr3fold journal;' enquiries'. At first I thought it seemed a little pricey, although excellently presented, however there is a CD included and when you start to work through that and watch the videos the whole thing comes to life. I am hooked and have been trying some of the dyeing and printing techniques. I think it will be really successful. I always look at Linda and Laura Kemshall’s monthly newsletter, and from that I found out about blogging!! This is their newest venture.
I am off to meet some members of UK Handmade in London tomorrow June 12th. 11am at the foyer of Festival Hall if any other Etsians or crafters can make it.
