Each day at the festival, we set forth to find new crafting opportunities. Clay model making, puppetry, pom poms, screen printing, lino relief painting, crafting a little big top, bug houses, circus hoops, the list goes on. Each evening, we filled and decorated our van and gazebo with our creations.
We love to craft at a festival, it allows a sense of place among the hubbub and loud commotion of it all. A moment of calm and concentration. Plus we get to try out new skills, which we can turn into future hobbies back at home.
The boys were hooked on the clay models – and since returning we have bought our own air drying clay and made some pinch pots for baby succulent plants. Meet Yellow Cat, Greta (yes I made her) and Tim!
