Patchings Art Festival is a four day event just outside Nottingham. I went last year and fancied going again, if I have time. Thursday I was busy, started the newsletter deliveries. Friday also busy, delivering newsletters. Saturday I was at the Bowls Club coffee morning, which only left Sunday, so off I went.
Patchings Art Centre is open all the year round, but on this festival event they put up huge marque's to house the many traders who come from all over the country to make, demonstrate, and sell their wares. There are a lot of artists who paint. It wasn't too busy early in the day, but the tents were buzzing later on.
The bonsai man was there again, he hasn't far to come. Their business is virtually across the road from the venue.
The Nottingham Concert Band was jollying things along, a nice place to watch and have my pack up lunch.Against the Grain. If I had pots of money I would buy some of this, I particularly liked the mirrors.
I wandered into the main part of the site. There is a café and seating area in the courtyard.
I'm going to stop here. After seeing everything I wanted to see of the exhibition, I took a walk along the Sculpture Trail, through the woods and around the pond. I'll do another post about that.
looks like another sunny day, so I'm going to do a bit of trimming up in the garden. I've finished another little board picture and it looks quirky, another blog post for that later. Toodle pip. ilona
