The other day, I headed to a beach near Lahinch, well it is a stony beach with driftwood and a lot of rubbish. After almost filling the boot of the car with drift wood, I decided to fill a large bag with plastic bottles and bring them to the bottle bank. It was like saying a little thank you to the beach for the driftwood. When we got home our children played with the driftwood and we have been burning it in the fire and I have kept some of the more suitable pieces for hanging some of the hand made books from and maybe to make some other things with them.
The Secret Gallery will be opening again soon, so we are getting ready, lots of tidying and painting and making small art objects for it. At the moment the theme is to create a fun and memorable ritual with an every day recycled object; creating something special out of the ordinary! Just think how much of our life we don’t remember; one day is often much like another. I would like to do little things to change that.
