Sooo... big news at Innerspiral Studio camp. We are pleased and excited to announce that our felt making workshop will be taking place at the following events (in chronological order)
- The Beltane Buzz http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=154311137952287. This is a really cool little private party/beginning of season mini festival and we will be taking not only our full set up with our tent and felt making workshop but we will also be there with our stall and our hula hoop cart workshop party (see our sister blog, pixiehoopsound, for more details on that). It's on the west coast of Wales, a mega drive away, but we don't mind. We really wanted to celebrate Beltane in style and then, magically, along pops this with Beltane in the very name... magick is a real thing! If anyone wants to come tickets are only £35 each, the setting sounds idyllic and it's right next to the beach.... yeah... and the weather is sweeeeeeeet.... We will be going on Friday 29th April in the evening until Sunday the 1st of May... we would stay longer but our next event is the very next day...
- St Werburgs City Farm, Boiling Wells site, is having a May Day Celebration on Monday 2nd May. We will be there from 12pm - 5pm running our Drop In Dredds making workshop for the first part and taking bookings for Book In Bowls later in the day. Come and take part for FREE! Go to http://www.stwerburghs.org/index.php?section=calendar&event=mayday_celebration.txt for more information. Felting all Mayday, yay!
- We will also be running Drop In Dredds, Book In Bowls and Mini Hats workshops at the Malcolm X Centre in St Pauls as part of our involvement with the Montpelier Arts Trail. We will also be exhibiting our wares including some of our more fun and interesting crochet and felt creations as well as the Pattern Exhibtion 2:0 including screenprints and original felt pattern art.

- GLASTONBURY FESTIVAL!! GREENFIELDS GREENCRAFTS FIELD!! Wednesday 22nd - Sunday 26th June * yay yay yay * do a dance woo hoo....* Whoops sorry I think I got a bit over excited there! Amazingly enough, our application to run our felt making workshop in the Greenfields has been accepted. That makes us two very chuffed pigs and cats. We will be there all week long, right next door to the stone circle, demonstrating our felt making, drop spindling and crochet and running our felt making workshops.... including mini hats making of course as a festival would not be complete without it :) everyone should have a mini top hat! We will totally have our stall up as well, cos we can, and especially as we found such a great vibe with our stuff at Glastonbury Town Hall market yesterday :)) http://www.glastonburyfestivals.co.uk/Areas/the-green-fields/the-greencrafts-field
So there you go, mercury turned around and gave us lots of good news all at once! We will hopefully be running our felt making workshops at the Easton Arts Trail too, at our Fabulous Travelling Bag Folk event at the Greenbank Pub over 18th and 19th June just before Glasto, watch this space... Until then we've got our first Fabulous Travelling Bag Folk festival market running on Saturday 14th May... it's going to be really fun with loads of festival style vibes and wares, so come along and cider it up with us lol just don't get it on our stock init ;) There will be some wicked DJ's on in the evening to make it a proper fat party including our very own DJ Trott :) hooray! www.greenbankpub.co.uk and bagfolk.blogspot.com for more info on these little beauties :) See you there dudes!
