I am back from a wonderful Wickerman Festival experience!
Such a fantastic weekend filled with scorching sunshine, beautiful sunsets, much music & singing & dancing, and my workshops going down a storm! I arrived in the Lowland Links tent on Friday morn to set up amidst roaring Vikings in full chain mail & helmet getup, a storyteller clad in medieval gown and so many other entertaining happenings.
unpacked oodles of paint & pens & arty things.
Propped up my family tree samples & inspirations.
Laid out sketchbooks stuffed with ideas & info.
Spread out a feast of templates & worksheets,
then sat back & waited with baited breath!
and very soon they began to arrive, lots of smiling & inquisitive wee ones
filled with enthusiasm & ideas of their own they began to create their very own family trees.
Masterpieces a-plenty, flowery trees, branchy trees, trees with lots of family names, trees filled with family fingerprints, some with birds & butterflies, others with beasties, each one quite unique.
There are far too photo's of the creations to share here, so if you want a peep at more
of the lovely works of art & folks who made them take a look over here.Thank you to each and every one of you who came along to say hi, lend a hand, or have a go. To Susi sweetpea provider of provisions & mansion sized tent & Mr O for an endless supply of tea, delicious food & an extra pair of hands and the biggest thank you to all you wonderful youngsters for sharing your creativity and laughter. Can you tell I had a wonderful weekend folksies.
My family tree workshops are great fun as you can see,
if anybody fancies having this activity at their event do get in touch.
