At the weekend I was in the sunshine at the Wirksworth Festival in Derbyshire. It's an annual pilgrimage and this year we took friends who hadn't been before so saw the event through fresh eyes. Favourite artists were James Green and Rachel Grigor, We stayed in the town and so enjoyed a more leisurely pace on the art and architecture trail with breaks at music venues and the Wirksworth Brewery. I met up with other lovely artists and makers and bumped into lots of people I've met since I've exhibited at Wirksworth and Melbourne Festivals. We discovered that this amazing venue was for sale, it had a magical garden with livestock and a veggie plot...utterly magical. Sunshine, art, beer, chips and the company of good friends....a perfect end to the summer.
