A Fair Coniston

20/10/2016 until 06/11/2016

Following on from A Fair Land in Dublin, the project team - The Fairland Collective of Niamh Riordan, Francesca Ulivi, Brenda Kearney, Emily Cropton and Motoko Fujita delivered a part of the original project for the village of Coniston. A simple structure was put together by Tom Philipson who also extended the range of the one stick revolution, (the stool, basket, tray, made from pieces of flooring) to encompass room dividers, table legs, columns and storage units.

The project ran from 20th October to 6th November and offered the 4 making stations alongside the lunch and dinner events drawing on local produce, mainly - this time - pumpkins.

Further events an talks mirrored much of what had been done in Ireland with talks on Ruskin (Robert Hewison and Charlie Gere) small scale making by Assemble, Flower arranging with Alice MacCabe and much more.
