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

Where did he get the skull from?

Believe me.....You don't ask Paul questions like that!!. I'm guessing it came from a Pig

My humble offerings. The usual tables I display with, had been replaced and the new ones could'nt stay outside. My display was cobbled together with 3 tresles and 2 scaff planks.... it did look better than this....Honest!! The evening sun shining through the back, doesn't work very well.

The attendance for this year was through the roof! Not bad for an event that's not advertised. Word of mouth eh!
Had loads of interest, particularly when people spotted or were told they were mainly native trees.

This is the kind of tree I'd like in my front garden. The oldest tree in Suffolk and in his front garden. This Oak is over 1000 years old. Not very tall but very wide.

Me too. There is an attempt at something similar in Edinburgh that I've been to a couple of times, but this one of yours knocks its socks off.

Lovely setting, splendid exhibits.

And sunshine!!

Thanks Will, it looks like a great show. This is a very similar event to Woodfest Wales, where our club used to show annually. Same sort of exhibitors but the one in Wales has more of a commercial feel to it, I guess. There are also a lot of competitive events. Chainsaw carving, axe throwing, pole climbing and log chopping a a few that I remember. If anyone is interested, there's one coming up on 4th to 6th of June and it is detailed here. http://www.woodfestwales.co.uk/north/events_and_attractions.html

Note that the Vale of Clwyd Bonsai Society are not there this year. Their webmaster has included old details in error.

Drop me a PM if you plan to go, as I live very near.

It would be great to put on a larger exhibit next year, if anyone is interested. I only had one heckler all weekend and whenever he walked past, shouted "TORTURER". Even this was tongue in cheek. Well worth a visit anyway.

Great photos, one question, who's the guy in the photo? Who ever he is he doesn't have sense of style and your excellent taste in frocks! Laughing

PS: We're having a major aboriginal uprising here in the US Midwest. It appears someone stole their teepees!

Hello Jay. The guy in the photo,was someone I met around the campfire the night before. He was caught out by the home made wine and cider and had to be carried back to his Tipi. How embarrasing He was still feeling fragile the next evening when I asked him to stand for the photo.

I heard that the chap in the next wigwam to you was equally caught out but in his case it was by the extra strong brews of Camellia sinensis. Sadly, he was later found drowned in his tipi.

You may have to think about that one. Mad

Word gets around fast Fiona. It was quite a warm weekend and fortunately the salt content managed to preserve him and hold back the smell.

Poor lad, hopefully he will survive the experience!

Might I guess that you are also a student of the preservation and storage of grapes (and possibly other glucose engrossed materials) through the fine process of fermentation?

At present, I'm contemplating the bottling and labelling of approximately 10 gallons of grape and 30 gallons of mixed berry "preserves", (with an experiment about to begin in the preservation of 4 or 5 gallons of locally produced honey!) I also have in my freezer 20 or so pineapples, not sure if I want to make a light pineapple wine or a pineapple mead!

Haven't made any wine for a couple of years now. A dangerous game with my will power. At one time, Bev and me would make wine from just about anything short of grass cuttings. Our peak was 52 demijohn's, bubbling away all over the house. Successes were berries and flowers and in particular, Elder. Deeeeeeeeeelicious. Disasters were few but we had a go at Rowan berry wine. If you enjoy chewing paracetamol then Rowan's the wine for you.
