Sherwood Art Week Round Up

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. 


The shops of Sherwood were fantastic as a street long art gallery. This is a selection of some of my favourite displays.

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. 


Outside were lots of garlands of recycled paper origami shapes, very pretty and such a simple idea. 


The whole event was great, and I’m looking forward to next year, the 10th anniversary, already!
