I’m sharing photos of Sherwood Art Week today. It was a fun week and the area looked great. There was yarn bombing – I really liked this installation outside the library under a silver birch tree.
My kids loved the hungry caterpillar bunting, and this tree decorated by lots of local knitters and crocheters.

I love the Grayson Perry bunting by Dolly Loves Dallas. The whole display was fantastic!
I really enjoyed seeing such a wide range of art and crafts on display, it’s amazing to think that all the artists are local to Sherwood and there is so much diverse talent.
We took a short trip to the Secret Garden Craft Fair, we were there pretty early but it looked set to be a great day.
I went to the Courtyard Craft Fair the following week and had a good giggle at Faye Finney’s stall, this is the card I bought for a friend, there was a lot of other cards which I found very funny (Justin Beaver is one I remember!) I also bought a little cactus from Laura at Little Egg Design (who recognised me from Instagram, I felt famous!)
We had a pit stop at the Remarkable Recycling Gala, I didn’t get much chance to look at stalls due to a worn out 4yr old, however the entrance to the church where the gala was held was decorated by the Sherwood Young Artists group. I was very impressed by this screen- it’s all tissue paper and plastic but looks like stained glass.
