Gaunts House Summer Gathering 2013

Our last festival outing for this season was a return to Gaunts House near Wimbourne, Dorset for their summer gathering held from 8th through to 11th August. Beautiful weather blessed the entire gathering from start to finish.

Gaunts House is a great place for us to catch up with old friends and make new. This small family friendly gathering offers a great festival atmosphere with a focus on workshops, therapies, speakers and inspirational music.
Our large dreamcatcher (pictured above) reached completion after being started at Glastonbury and then added to at Larmer Tree and WOMAD.

Hilary and Leigh were again our lovely neighbours, the photo below shows Hilary wearing one of our T-shirts that she purchased last year. As with all naturally dyed fabrics, they do not like strong alkaline or acid as Hilary discovered with an accidental splash of lemon juice. Her creative juices led to a great positive outcome as she used more lemons to gently treat the affected area. The light brown marks show how she stencilled the area and applied a delicate spray of lemon juice to create more depth to the night sky scene. Great thinking Hilary!!

The dates for next year's Summer Gathering are 7-10th August 2014. For more information, follow the link below to the official website:
