Thank you to all the artisans, wonderful guests, volunteers and staff (not to mention the beautiful weather we had) for another successful Heart & Hand Festival.
We encouraged you to vote for your favourite artisan display and you did!
Pysanky Artist - Anne Cline
Anne is a perennial favourite at the Heart & Hand Festival and we were so happy to have her back again this year. With her array of intricately decorated and detailed eggs she impressed visitors of all ages. She also gave people a chance to try the wax relief dying technique for themselves. Congratulations Anne on you People's Choice win!
Potter - Lisa Marcus
This was Lisa's first time at the Heart & Hand Festival and she made a big impression. Along with her display of whimsically decorated pottery Lisa brought a potter's wheel and invited visitors to try for themselves. She also taught visitors some clay hand building techniques. She surely inspired some new potters! Congratulations!
Fibre artist,Wendo Van Essen, performer and multi-talented 2013 Folk Artist-in-Residence, Sarah Granskou, along with Cabinet and violin maker, Phil Elsworthy, were also among the top favourites at this year's Heart & Hand Festival.
See you next year!
