A Blooming Marvellous Festival of Delights

That’s the summery theme of this year’s Grassington Festival, and I’m delighted to be taking part in a small way.

“Artists, printers, illustrators and makers of contemporary craft from all over the country exhibit high quality work relating to botanicals and blooms.”

Yesterday I delivered these two framed pieces, plus four of my little thread bowls. They’ll be on display in the town hall from 18th June to 2nd July.

This is an amazing festival, bringing world class music, theatre, comedy, film and visual arts to the gorgeous Yorkshire Dales. Plus workshops, walks, and the bunting challenge – the longest stretch of bunting in the world (yes, an actual Guinness Record) was created last year, for the Festival’s 30th birthday!

I’m so lucky, it’s just a few miles up Wharfedale for me – but it’s well worth travelling a lot further for if you can.
