Fringe Festival

It is always good to expand your skills into public areas outside business. So I have been expanding my creative skills into the Fringe Festival. The Fringe Festival is Wellington's "biggest little arts festival". It runs from 20 February to 14 March 2015, and has over 50 venues in the Wellington area. More information can be found here.

One of these 50 venues features my own contribution to the Fringe Festival. It is on the traffic island in the CBD on the corner of High Street and Andrews Avenue Lower Hutt. The traffic island has been decorated with frames of flowers that are made from either wool or plastic bottles. Five frames are on the island, plus clusters of standing plastic flowers. But mine is the only frame that features wool flowers; the others are all covered with plastic bottles turned into floral art. My frame appears on the right of the photograph below. The flowers are made from my own handspun wool and they include roses, daisies, poppies, carnations, sunflowers, and products of the imagination.
