Rae Vyn of Black Bird Studio was a Culture Days activity organizer and she's been blogging regularly in the days leading up to and after the big weekend. We've invited her to re-publish some of her blog posts here on the Culture Days blog. Have you been blogging about your Culture Days weekend? Share your inspiring stories on the Culture Days blog. Here's how.
A list of observations from a day of making art with wool and a hodgepodge of neighbours:
- If you build it, they will come
- Old dogs, and young pups, can always learn new tricks
- Wind and wool aren't always the best combination
- It takes courage to step out and try something new
- Bravery comes in all shapes and sizes
- The delight of discovering something new is beautiful to watch
- Creativity is empowering
- Just because we haven't, doesn't mean that we can't
- Time flies when you're having fun
- When we work shoulder to shoulder we don't feel like strangers anymore
- Art is best when served al fresco, with friends
Thank you so much to all who came out and took part in our felting masterpiece. To those who scheduled it in to their busy day, and to those who stumbled on us by accident and stayed to play...thank you. It would not be what it is without you.
And a huge thank you to the Silver Bean Cafe for offering us their lovely patio, and being such generous supporters of this idea. Also to Bridget at Needles in the Hay, for her wonderful contribution of needles and wool. Until Thanksgiving weekend you can drop by the Silver Bean to see one of the finished pieces on display. Stay tuned to find out where you can wander to after that to check out these incredible works of community art!
