Renewables Festival 2011

We hope you enjoyed the Blyth Renewables Festival and all the creative workshops by Headway Arts and several other great local arts organisations. We’re pleased to say we made hundreds of hats and windcatchers with you over the weekend!

Visitors to the festival also had the opportunity to help decorate our dragon with ribbon and scraps of material (a special thanks to Blyth Star Enterprises for the fabric donation) before she made her first official public appearance.
Here’s a few photos of her parading around with local children:
