Walthamstow Garden Party: And There's More!

Artillery Island stood proudly in the centre of Lloyd Park and for us was a focal point. It formed part of a much larger exciting collaboration of different artistic, creative and foodie pursuits. The E17Designers Market showcased many of the E17 Art Trail’s beloved creatives including Seiko from D4Discus (I couldn't resist getting this cute Hungry Caterpillar cushion!) and Bridget from Beyond Beading who were friendly faces.
The creative stall was filled with activity from making simple rings with my friends Lucie and Karen from Made by Ore, a most impressive xylophone workshop from the Blackhorse Workshop and printing and bird house building to name others.
Outside the tents there was a cyanotype workshop and the opportunity to create large poppy as part of the latest Significant Seams giant work.


 
Inside the William Morris Gallery there were levels of activity leading up to hand printing on the top floor. It really was amazing how many levels there were to the man himself too, not just the pretty flowers - and there was even a walking tour on that too. The Walthamstow Garden Party had it covered.
 
Joining our marquee on Artillery Island was a recycling planting workshops, and a children’s theatre production. Along the bridges there was a travelling story boat and out towards the back far too much to contain here.

Overall another astounding unbelievably packed full weekend of wonder and magic. The weather was glorious, we were blessed with sunshine and warmth to enjoy the buzzing bees in William Morris’s flower garden.
Suffice to say if you missed it this year, get it in your diaries for next year to avoid disappointment.
