My first Artfest!
I'm getting my final preparations done, packing my bags and wondering where it will all fit, and then Wednesday morning will be off to Artfest, a four day art retreat in Port Townsend. My first! I'm a festal virgin, apparently, along with other first time attendees. I'm just a bit nervous, but very excited and can't wait to get there and start playing.
Many folks bring "trades", and mine are little wooden charms. They are stained with alcohol inks, some images stamped, hedgehogs are decoupaged, colored in and crystal lacquer over the top to seal. The back of all the charms have acorns. Very simple charms based on the retreats theme of Forest Walk. The picture shows the charms awaiting their jump rings and packaging.
