Arts In Action day

Today, a friend and I decided to go to the annual Arts in Action show/displays at Waterperry House near Oxford. It's all about getting different types of artists to show their wares, do demos, plus there're practical classes to try and music to listen to.

Luckily the weather held off as it was all in marquees. However we were a little disappointed as we were expecting more demos/people working at their stands, and more opportunities to buy some supplies on different types of crafts - too much of it was art/painting based.

Neither of us bought much - some of the work was not really our cup of tea, although some of the jewellery work was stunning (my favourite piece was £3500!)...most work was very out of price range for what we expected. The best bit was the lovely Waterperry Gardens Apple juice we tried, and watching the glass blowing demo.

It was a nice morning out, but definitely won't be going again - a bit too museum like in the displays for us.
