Wow, what an amazing few weeks it has been! The E17 2012 art trail has just finished (yesterday was the last day) and athough the first weekend was largely dominated by the foul EDL marching through our lovely Walthamstow (we love our mixed community thank you very much, as we clearly showed you!), the last two weekends have been amazing. The weekend of 8th and 9th September was hot and I did a little art trail visiting with my lovely friend Salima, her son Haroun and my Max. We started at The Mill and the gorgeous exhibits on there, as well as the amazing Grow Your Own Theatre (website: grow your own theatre) doing some children’s drama sessions which Max took part in. He made a superhero wristband and then they made a little play together. He hasn’t stopped being a superhero yet!
We then visited Birdbox Avenue, local people having decorated little birdboxes which were hung all over people’s front gardens, school fence and down the length of Coppermill Lane. Half the fun was spotting them!
We then visited the wonderful @fabsternation who had taken photos of local twitter friends with their favourite possessions. He had just moved into his new home which had an amazing view of the water filter beds on the edge of the marshes.
The on the Sunday we witnessed a carrot and a leek being united in holy matrimony at the Vegetable Chapel of Love, a bonkers and super fun event.
