I have a stand at this event on September 26th where I will be selling copies of my signed book and a few other homemade bits and bobs.For the second year in a row, innovative live art and performance company,Home Live ART, presents a riotous weekend of artist’s, craft and produce stalls, performances and participatory activities which re-interpret the traditional village fete for the urban environment of the National Theatre. At 12pm each day the Fete will be opened by a special Guest Star from the National Theatre…. Saturday will revolve around a vibrant stage programme - including a mass ukulele jam, contemporary barn dance, participatory skipping & hoola hooping and a spectacular bird of prey demonstration – alongside a wealth of fun, participatory fete based games and interactions that bring our traditional craft making practices into the 21st Century. The Legendary Miss Amy Lame invites you to make a pom pom for peace, while you can brush up on your knitting, sewing and craft skills.
Here are a few pictures of my stand at the alternative Craft fete. taken by NIgel Aono-Bilson whose wife Hiroko was exhibiting her wonderful Blue field collection on the next stall. Do look at the Home live art site for lots more images from a wonderful weekend. It was a huge success and one I hope to return to next year.
This week I had a meeting with ChateauDumas and I have confirmed that I will be leading 2 residential workshops in 2010 titled
RE-Inventing Vintage French Textiles.
All guests stay in the Chateau which is in Auty, a small hamlet north of Toulouse .
The studio workshop is in this old gatehouse.
