I’ve just got back from doing the festival for the seventh time now, somewhat tired after talking about myself for two days but it has all been very worthwhile. The weather was a bit poor on the saturday afternoon but it didn’t deter people too much and the lovely sunny sunday more than made up for it. It was great to see returning customers and lots of new ones too. The interest this time seemed to be in my ‘metalheads’ and the octopuses on stones. I managed to finally sell a piece i’d made fourteen years ago and one i didn’t even have with me but that’s another story. Thanks must go to the organisers for making it another successful event and to Jane & John Kilpatrick at Roraima House (venue 4 this time) for their hospitality.
