Weird and Wonderful wood festival. 2010

Post  Guest on Thu May 20, 2010 6:03 pm

Last weekend, there was a Festival in the middle of Suffolk. Held in the grounds of Haughley Park, near Wetherden, was the 5th Weird and Wonderful wood Festival. Lots of like minded people gathered there, to show their appreciation of everything and anything, to do with wood. My bed for the weekend.

The owner of the house is a huge fan of this weekend and is a cabinet maker in his spare time. He uses the trees from the estate to make his furniture.

There were traders there but there was a good percentage of craftsmen and artists, just showing what can be achieved with wood.

Irene and Peter. I can seriously recomend camping in a Tipi. I have done this for the last 5 W+W, and hangover or no hangover, going to bed and seeing the stars above you or waking in the morning, to a blue sky, takes some beating. Plus you can stand up too.

Even if the "native" is on another continent.

My good friend, Paul. Whilst appearing fairly normal on the outside, I fear the inside of his head is a very dark arena! Some of his creations, I thought it safe to show you.

I really like Paul's work, Will. Ok, maybe it could be considered a trifle 'dark', but I see it more as 'challenging'.

I like to see work that challenges the concepts of what art really is.

Where did he get the skull from? I can tell the last one is a pig, but where did he get the weatherbeaten cow head?
