*** Festival Sticker Art ***
Celebrating 10 years of Festival Fun and our first year at Limetree present a Slightly Freaky Garden.
Zillions of unwanted self-adhesive labels need a good home. Come and help us make a new Garden of Earthly Delight. Pink trees, butterflies as big as ostriches, beautiful snakes, strange fruits, stripy wombats, a pond with lilies and a perhaps a mottled shark you can get inside. Gingerbread arbors, dotted gazebos and an enormous caterpillar. If you can imagine it – you can make it.
Anyone can make anything with stickers. Full of colour and powerfully satisfying peeling and sticking; truly the most adhesive kind of fun. Come with your family, come with your friends, or just come along and meet new people.
Transform your Head! Get stuck in with bogus Professor Mad McSticker-Hatter’s mind-storming hat making and fashion workshop. He will show you how to transform your image with a wacky festival hat, a freaky fascinator, a wallpaper waistcoat, a suit of armour or just customise your wellies. Lost your favourite rain hat? Learn to make a funky Balinese umbrella with water-proof stickers! (if we have any left).
