It was Art in the Pen last weekend and it was nice to see some familiar faces and to meet a few new ones. The event was well attended with a steady flow of visitors over the weekend keeping me busy demonstrating and talking about felt making.
I had a trauma on Saturday evening when I noticed that my art work which was mounted on boards was buckling and could no longer be left on display. It meant a complete change round of the display first thing on Sunday morning with my husband coming along to help dig me out of more trouble. What would I do without him? here’s a few photos of how the stall looked on Sunday. My favourite part of the display was the old piece of fencing on which we displayed the brooches – also my husband’s idea.
The quality of exhibitors was high and I’d like to introduce the work of Chris Rymer of Inside Out Wood Art. He makes beautiful wooden vases and bowls from old trees, the more diseased the wood the more interesting the final piece of work. If you’re chopping down any trees or shrubs and have branches of 3″ diameter or more, Chris would love to hear from you.
I hope next years show will be as good.
