A brilliant 10th anniversary for Chorlton Arts Festival was wrapped up for Rubbish Revamped with our first ever Open Studio. It was sadly the wettest wet day in a fairly dry period. Thanks, weather. Despite this it was lovely to welcome old and new revamping friends to view displays of revamped rubbish and dabble with some crafting at the mini drop-in workshops.
“It’s amazing what can be done with rubbish”. “You have re-inspired my love of rubbish”.
“It was cool”. “What a lovey time here today! Thank you for teaching us how to make such groovy stuff”. “Thanks. This has really been so inspiring. What a great idea for a hen party”. So said some of the day’s visitors – thanks, it was lovely to see you all!
A big favourite this year for me was singer Beth Jeans Houghton. Stunning voice, great stage presence and endearingly quirky. Listen to her beautiful song – and enjoy the accompanying video (“produced on no budget” says producer TommyHootchiekaboom – wanna make one for Rubbish Revamped then?) at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GwkTCov06Pk&feature=related
