Its a really wonderful arts festival which I've been involved with for several years - I adore that its organised at grass roots level and showcases work of artists from all walks of life who have a connection with Sherwood. Its an incredibly vibrant community there and Sherwood (which is just north of Nottingham City Centre) has a very active community of creatives and independent businesses.
My work is in the window of Divine Coffee House - a great venue which also hosts Book Crossing books (a wonderful project) and is a lovely independent business. I've got some work in Whitegates also and with a group installation with Sherwood Printmakers in HH Estate Agents and the TSB. There are so many artists exhibiting in Sherwood shops for this part of the festival - and some wonderful yarn bombing adorning Mansfield Road. The work in shops is up all week and there's such a rich variety of creations.
Next weekend on Sunday 26th June I've got a stall at the Remarkable Recycling Gala (the website link features one of my books on the home page) which is a great event and there'll be lots of artists there but also demonstrations, food, performances and lots of great information.
