ME and MINE Art Camp for Powys Young Carers

Lots of interesting geodesic goings-on
I was helping my friends Sue and Richie with the catering for this event, lots of people there, maybe 80 or 90 altogether. With many of them being kids I did have a few concerns about how it would go... but as it turned out this was a wonderful, fun, high-energy few days. Inspiring and sometimes moving, it was great just to see everyone getting on - and they did some fantastic artwork too.
Love all these colours and shapes...
The event was at Sychpwll, pronounced "suchpoochl", meaning "dry pool", refering to an ancient safe river crossing point. The site has been developed over many years by Pete Hendry and has lots of interesting low-impact buildings and features, including a vast photvoltaic array. It was an excellent venue for the camp and we hope to use it for Sector39 courses soon. More about Sychpwll here.

...but the final word goes to the kids.
