I only had a short time at art group this week as I had to go early – we were visiting the family. My third go at Kizzie hasn’t got very far. I have, in the meantime, discovered a web site that enables me to create many interesting paint effects, and will be featuring it soon. It is called psykopaint, and was mentioned on the BBC Sunday lunchtime programme “Click”.
During my stay, I took the opportunity to visit Humber Bridge farmers’ market. It has craft stalls as well as the usual produce. It takes place on the viewing platform, which is on the Hull side, so you need to pay £2.70 at the toll bridge if you aren’t travelling from that side. http://www.humberbridgeevents.co.uk/
This lady makes unique chocolates, and her husband and son were selling them at the market.
A display of handmade dolls.
A wood turner, Stephen Jenneson, was chatting to some customers and I could hear him saying that he tries to get a bit of artistry into his items, whenever possible.There were also some wooden cat items, which I am featuring in my Kizzie cat blog.
Long queues formed at some of the more popular stalls, particularly the ones selling meat. A café was open and a specially set up radio station broadcasted over the tannoy to tell us the hog roast was now ready, amongst other things. I found it a little intrusive at times, but perhaps I am too used to a quiet life! None of the traders seemed to take debit cards, even the ones selling more expensive items, so you need plenty of cash. I was able to buy our niece’s birthday presents, which she chose from the Usborne stall. All in all, a good morning out.
