After the Storms

After the Storms

In the light of the storms earlier this year we shall be taking the theme of erosion and the resulting re-arrangement of the boundary between the water and the land; the destruction and re-creation of the coastline, and possibly the re-creation of ourselves, over the weekend!
So, walking, observing, absorbing, listening, sensing, dancing, painting and making will become the core of the weekend.
