Woodford 15-16, the tree of life

It was perfect weather at this year’s Woodford Folk Festival, and the theme of the  festival was the Tree of Life. The festival has its own Children’s festival within it. For this year’s screen I made a tree of life for the children to print their designs within. I also ran some indigo and plant printing workshops in Artisania.

I love pre festival set up, when we pitch our campsite and wander the festival before the crowds arrive, listening to the sound of rehearsals, and watching the tents go up, reading the entertaining signs that emerge from Signology ” our erections stay up”, and seeing the venues being built. At the festival, between workshops I enjoyed watching the circus and the circus audience.
