Just a quick reminder about....

Fairkytes Summer Fayre
This Saturday 10am-4pm

There'll be lots of art and craft displays, live music and drama, dance, DJing skills and more.
Part of the Hornchurch Festival of Arts & Heritage, Fairkytes Arts Centre, Hornchurch.

It's free entry and the sun is bound to be shining so venture along and enjoy some of the activities on offer. I don't know too much about what is planned but it's a really nice atmosphere over at Fairkytes and the Queen's Theatre, a great way to spend a lazy Saturday afternoon.

A little more about the Festival can be found here: Hornchurch Festival

Here is a working sketch that i'm hoping to turn into one of my pieces for Saturday. It's taken from one of hundreds of pictures I took when I went to Beth Chatto's gardens. It's such a lovely place to visit and as usual I got a little trigger happy and took far too many pictures! I went at the beginning of May when all of the spring flowers were out so i'm going to go back when everything is in full bloom to get some more inspiration.

It will definitely get you in the mood for summer and give you lots of crafty inspiration.
I just wish it was the week end again so I can go on a picnic with lots of scrumptious food and maybe a glass or two!

Freeconomy London

Everyone remembers the man who gave up money for a year to live in a caravan with his laptop, mobile and solar panel charger to keep him company! Well he loved it so much that he's still at it and is trying to spread the good word in London. I've never heard him speak but apparently he's meant to be really inspiring so i'm heading along to hear for myself.

If you get the chance pop along as well to:
Inward Revolution Outward Evolution EventGoldsmiths Student Union, 16th June, 7-10pm

Oh and I designed the poster for them which is why i'm also trying to spread word about the event. The idea behind it was to have nature slowly taking over the City of London and its iconic buildings. After reading about Mark Boyle and Charles Veitch on the internet I tried to mix inspiration from Soviet posters and the 60's psychedelic love posters. Both have commercial backgrounds which they have rebelled against leaning towards a more natural and free spirited way of life, which I was trying to convey.
