My Weekend at the DIY...

I'm not a regular blogger so please bear with me...

I'm part of the NTW Summercamp here on beautiful Anglesey and have also taken part in the DIY Festival this weekend, and just wanted to share some thoughts and work.  The summer camp so far has been reallly interesting, particularly regarding the idea of process - I don't think I really got the knack of the camp until Thursday, if you can indeed get the knack of it.  I started with an idea that I…
