Adam throws pots

We ran a Craft Salon to run alongside the Coniston Arts and Crafts Annual Exhibition held in the village hall. The salon took place in the library where we tucked away the unsightly book carousels and Romance novels and displayed instead bits of pottery, glass, metal work and books from our collection and library. We had artists, craft people, and historians talking and showing. Charlie Whinney and his demonstration of how to steam-bend wood got the biggest round of applause though Adam's history of the Arts and Crafts Movement demonstrated by the throwing of pots came a very close second.

We have been busy over the last couple of weeks with a group of German Architecture students and tutors who stayed at Lawson Park and Low Parkamoor and thought about issues of land use, commons law and access rules while helping tidy our messy wood pile. The left and another group of Extra Special People from Birmingham's Eastside Projects arrived. The weekend consisted of hard toil in the fields for some, and for the others, a social couple of days at the Craft Salon at The Mechanics Institute where we organised lectures and demonstrations in the library as part of the Coniston Arts and Crafts Society Annual Exhibition.
