I love that each year, my little corner of Nottingham has a whole week dedicated to art and craft. Sherwood Art Week creates such a wonderful creative community spirit that is so rare to find so near to a city.
On the first Saturday, the main street had been yarn bombed, with the highlight definitely being the bicycle from my friends at Sherwood W.I.
Then that afternoon was the Sherwood Craft Fair, a great range of makers, artists and food producers, all from in or near Sherwood. The quality of stuff being produced in the area always amazes me! There were bands playing, kids activities and the sun even shone.
Throughout the week, many of the shops on Mansfield Road display art and craft in their windows, effectively turning the shop windows into one huge art gallery. I had some of my jewellery in one window last year.
This is just a small selection of the great work on display. Again, the variety of techniques, disciplines and styles on display was wonderful.
