Gaunts House Summer Gathering 2011

August 12th to 14th saw this year's Summer Gathering held in the beautiful grounds of Gaunts House, Dorset. It was our first time to exhibit our range of natural fibre and natural dye products at this event.

There were lots workshops being run throughout the weekend for all ages and an abundance of activities to entertain children. Below is a photo of a girl holding the dream catcher she had made. I apologise to her for not getting her name and we look forward to meeting her again next year.

With such a range of activities and entertainment on offer, it is hard for me to list them all and do them justice. For more information about this intimate gathering of like minded individuals, please click here!

Bourne-Craft was a stall that impressed me greatly. These mirrors are all uniquely cut from various types of plywood and have a strong coastal theme ranging from surfing to VW inspired.
Wayne, the sole craftsman behind these creations was on hand to show his techniques for these original mirrors. For more information about these mirrors, please visit Wayne's website.

I have to mention that I was totally impressed with the quality of the compost loos at this festival. They were well thought out and regularly maintained, making them infinitely more agreeable to use than the standard chemical toilets that we are forced to encounter at almost all other festivals.
