Warm memories of Summer – Playgroup Festival – Brighton Goes Camping!

Commissions, Events, Festivals

This is how bad at blogging I am as I wrote this months ago and forgot to post. I suppose it’s relevant now though as for one it’s turned ruddy freezing! So I’m having an ikkle remenisce of the scorching, fuzzy fun times and long hazy days. Also Playgroup are selling off some cheap tickets for next years festival and they are very limited, so get in there – Playgroup Christmas Offer. Definitely a highlight of my summer. See ya there.

Last month I was invited to come and do the decor for Playgroup Festival. This beautiful little festival by the Brighton Club promoters of the same name is now in it’s second year and what an amazing 2nd year it was. I arrived on the Wednesday to paint lots of signage, including the main entrance welcome sign. Armed with Festival logo stencils and my trusty suitcase of paint I preceded to paint all manner of animal themed bits and bobs. And, yes, of course, plenty of Badgers!! Unfortunately, I only managed to get a couple of shots over the weekend as my camera ran out battery and I was having such a good time.

The festival had a great vibe, really friendly and a good size too, making it less of a mission to get around. Acts, such as DJ Format, Quantic and his Combo Barbaro, The Correspondents, Reso, High Rankin and many other audio delights rocked the crowds all weekend.

Proper Good. Cant wait until next year.

A sneak peek at some of the stuff I’ve been up to recently.This giant beast is part of a project that I have become involved in. It is going to be showcased at the Secret Garden Party this year as part of an action camp called “Wonky Paleontology” The sculpture is made of papier mache, cloth and piping and is in pieces. The bones will be buried in to a sand pit and then dug up and put together to make a giant puppet. The project is the brain child of artists at the Crescent Studios in Brighton, Katherine Griffin, Elizabeth Jardine and Carinan Blijdenstein. If you are at SGP or Playgroup festival this year then you may just catch a glimpse of this creature.
