join the flock

thanks to sheila dixon's newsletter i found out about this fab project and now i'm sharing it with all of you.

www.jointheflock.co.uk
flock is a huge public art project, co-ordinated by eden arts organisation in cumbria.

they are encouraging folk to get involved and help to create an installation of 5,000 wool pom-pom sheep to be displayed in cumbria in april.

the project's aim is to encourage creativity and collaboration while raising awareness and celebrating the sheep farming & wool industry.

what a fab way to use up some of your stash and be part of a wonderful public art project.  i look forward to seeing pics of your woolly sheep.

get involved ... download the kit and get creative :)

the snowdrop spectacular will be running until 13th march and is open daily from 10am to 5pm, so you still have a chance to view the vista of snowdrops plus some wonderful artworks, just not under the sparkly lights at night though.

here’s a little more information about cambo and their snowdrops:

“the gardens, including a victorian walled garden and informal woodland garden, boast over 300 varieties of specialist snowdrops and a limited number of these are sold each year.

catherine’s collection of snowdrops, which is being added to yearly, is the largest specialist snowdrop collection in scotland.

you can follow the cambo burn to the shore, it is the 70 acres of woodland, historically laid out with a series of walks in mind, which provide the snowdrop spectacular in february and early march – possibly the best in britain."
 
it was dark by the time i finished setting up, so i've no photos to share yet, promise to remedy this soon!
