Another Woodford Folk Festival, and 2015 began with fire ceremony, music and the arts.
Woodford’ visiting artist this year was Wang Wen Chih from Taiwan who with a team of 30 people created the nest like bamboo entranceways to the festival and the amphitheatre.http://www.woodfordfolkfestival.com/programme/act.html?qs=399
My team: Juliet, Alison, Potts, Ilene and Jess helped with workshops in the Childrens festival and Visual Arts, kept my tent afloat through the drenching rain and burning sun, and helped my Woodford experience flow as hundreds of children printed their unmasked bags, and the shibori workshops unfolded a kaleidoscope of indigo designs, and colourful patterns on silk.
One of my most memorable moments this year was of storyteller Kate Day, who wove a mesmerising tale about a giant and a small brave girl that made me stop and listen right to the happily ever after. http://www.woodfordfolkfestival.com/programme/act.html?qs=79
