Open Garden Days & Secret Craft Fair 2013

By Janet, May 28 2013 12:56PM

We held an open garden and secret craft fair in 2012 at our home in Loughborough, Leicestershire as a launch party for The Refectory Table. A year later the garden was listed in the esteemed National Gardens Scheme – known to many as the ‘Yellow Book’.

We opened the garden again with the NGS in June 2013 and held another Secret Craft Fair. The artists included – Helen Hallows, Craig Fellows, Helen Rhodes, Barry Bulsara, The Apothecary Room and Jennie McCall.

There were some curious things happening in the shed - Martin Currie, Intergalactic Master at Arms presented short educational talks on types, care of, and the dangers of Rayguns on Saturday. On Sunday Maxine Greer put her Synchronised Swimming Peg Doll display team through their paces and turned the shed into a bed-sheet cinema for the premiere of her stop motion animation Peg Tango.

You can read more about the whole weekend on Janet's blog the secateur.
