Sculpture Festival at Bristol Botanic Garden


Over the Easter bank holiday weekend I visited Bristol Botanic Garden, for their Easter Sculpture Festival and Quilting Exhibition. I had been to the Botanic Garden many times before, but never for this particular event, so I was intrigued.

Playlist: Moving On to Better Things


I wasn't really sure how to phrase this post. Suffice to say, there's been a lot of crappy stuff happening in the last half decade or so of my life, and it has weighed heavy on me. I finally feel like my life is moving on from that. I really want to leave it all well and truly behind me and emerge shiny, happy and FABULOUS from the ashes!

Adventures In Fabric Dyeing



A while ago I thrifted a carrier bag full of very old Dylon dyes (the ones that came in tins, anyone remember those?). There were an array of wonderful colours, and I wanted to experiment, so I grabbed all the light coloured natural fabrics I had to hand and set to work.

Museum of the Moon


I've been following Bristol based artist Luke Jerram's work since I went to his wonderful, surreal Withdrawn installation in 2015. So when I read that he would be touring a new, moon themed installation, I was very excited, and hoped that it would stop off in his home city at some point. After much anticipation, it was announced that Museum of the Moon would be open to the public at the beautiful Wills Memorial Building (part of Bristol University) over the last weekend in March. The amazing Neo Gothic architecture of the building was the perfect backdrop to the surreal sight of a mini (but still pretty large!) moon, seemingly floating above the ground of its own accord.
