Front Room: The Totterdown Art Trail 2008

17 Nov

I have been looking forward to writing this post for WEEKS!

It was the Totterdown Art Trail this weekend (that is the local arts trail for my area in Bristol) and this year we decided to open up our house for exhibiting. It turned out to be a great success! We had loads of visitors throughout the whole weekend and I got a great response to all my work, so I was really pleased 🙂

I had been working really hard for months to get it all ready on time and it was so rewarding to see everything come together in the end. It has made me feel very fortunate to live in such a great community with so many creative, friendly and fun-loving people – hurrah for Totterdown!!

Here’s some pictures:

I made these boxes of hand cut paper butterflies from vintage hand-marbled papers that I bought from an old book binders in bristol. The paper with the writing is from some old legal letters I bought from ebay dating back to the 1880’s.

My mum had a little shop bit at the end selling stuff that she had made – the peg bags proved to be particularly popular!!

My friend Louise had some of her work on display in the other room.

There are some more detailed pics of this work here on flickr.

This was taken on the Sunday evening – I was just about ready to drop by this point! very tired, but very happy 😀
