Bowker Creek Brushup 2021

August 8, 2021

in my neighbourhood – back this year

as the name suggests this “art in the park” event is beside the creek

the weather was beautiful

live music was good and there was a bar-b-que  but the lineup was too long for me

art of all sorts – not just framed work

they didn’t have time to do any advertising but the word got around

one quilter was there – she had a strong fence to hang large quilts on

and a lady weaving baskets with kelp she gathers off the beach

and weaves it while wet

as the kelp dries it shrinks and twists

I didn’t buy one but was sorely tempted

maybe next time – she will be at Fibrations on Sunday September 19th

hope to see some of you there

    That looks like so much fun. I wish they’d do something like that here…

      Kate – Like I told Sue once upon a time I sold my weaving and demonstrated spinning but the logistics of getting there etc. became too much effort. It is an annual event so now everyone has a job and knows what to do which helps with time commitments etc. Textile one is next month.

        I shall enjoy it vicariously – assuming you plan to report on it.

        Kate – of course Fibrations was cancelled last year so everyone is excited to see it back. it is larger and more diverse than by the creek.

    That looks an interesting and fun event.

      Sue – I participated for several years but dragging all my stuff – table, chair, spinning wheel and weavings to the park and then back all became too much of an effort. There is no available parking but I can walk for a visit.

        Then a visit sounds good whereas taking part does not!

        Sue – there comes a time to make changes, and I get to visit with folks I rarely see.
