I learnt a lot from the brilliant speakers and came home feeling totally inspired and determined.
PLEASE DO ANOTHER ONE NEXT YEAR FOLKSY!
I met loads of lovely, creative people and got to try out a few crafts I'd never done before.
As promised, I took some photo's to share with you all!
I wasn't sure what to expect by the event, it was the first one. I had no idea how many people where going to be there. The answer.... over 200! There was quite a queue, but the promise of goodie bags kept us all in high spirits!
The location was amazing. In the woods! All the events/activities where in the lovely wooden hut or in the big tent. James (of folksy) walks his dog there and thought it was the perfect spot. It was.
I found the cutest stall/workshop called 'The button tin.'
I had a go at screen printing and lino printing:
Hung out in the crochet corner after lunch and made a few granny squares:
So tired at the end of the first day (we had to leave Liverpool early!) so we went to find our hotel room and then suss out a place to eat. We found the nicest place called 'Blue Moon Cafe' and we ate so much! I'll do a post on that one tomorrow.
After food we took our full tummies back to the hotel, rummaged through our goodie bags and did some crafts:
Pens, pencils, note pads, molly makes magazines, badges, fabric samples, sweeties, and some cutie business cards. THE BAGS WHERE GOOD!
Boy does crafts before bed:
Only a couple of pics from the second day. I was so engrossed by the speakers.
It took us AGES to get home (mainly because we stopped for chips) and came home to find our sunflower snapped *boo hoo*
THANK YOU FOLKSY!
