Aunty, Aunty, where are you?

Here I am!  Here I am!  How do you do?

It’s been a while since the last post, but we have been ever so busy with planning activities for this month and beyond.  Over the Bank Holiday weekend, we painted a gazillion faces and helped nippers make lots of pretty bracelets and necklaces at YOMOFO ‘Alfresco’ at Stanley Park Cricket Club.  Despite the yucky weather, it was a grand day out, with plenty of activities, brill music and smiling faces.

So, this is where we will be in June:

Watch out for other crafty activities in between!

Free Art Fridays part 2

Aunty has been ninja-ing around Blackpool town centre again leaving little crafty prizes for one and all.  This time we have badges, jewellery and a cuddly chicken called Clive along with a card and a little note.

We hope that the lucky finders will get in touch and let us know that the pieces have found a good home.  Why not pop into town and see if there are any still there?  The clues are in the photos!

Free Art Fridays: Aunty Spreads the crafty love!

Aunty has just been on a free art drop in Blackpool town centre.  Arty Farty Fridays, started by local screen print artist Robin Ross and inspired by the capers of street artist My Dog Sighs involves placing art on the street for members of the public to find and take home.  For more on the background of Free Art Fridays and the movement in general see the Facebook page.
