Just So Festival 2012
I have just got back from a busy weekend at the Just So Festival 2012 (so Rock n' Roll). It is a festival for young children and their families. A group of students had applied to assist Lord Whitney in theor fabulous set up of dressing of the site. I hung lampshades in a tree! I then ran a hectic Lantern Making workshop on Friday afternoon and all day Saturday. Glamourous assistants came in the form of Rick Clapham, Emma Thorpe, Laura Sharpe and even Gary Spicer came armed with extra supplies. This was a very popular workshop, the lanterns took on all sorts of forms and structures. Watching families work on them together was a real joy. It culminated in a wonderful night time parade of the 378 lanterns that were made. Phew!
