Ooooh, I do like colour in my life. There was an amazing splash of colour in the 20 21 Arts Centre last week. The Caribbean Arts Festival filled St Johns Church and was well worth going to see. The work that goes into making these costumes is amazing, which are mostly made up of recycled and re purposed second hand materials. I found them very inspiring.
