Charity Building Block
I got this in the post today from the Masham Arts Festival organisers... a wooden 6cm square block of wood!
The idea is that artists/celebrities/(anyone really!) paint blocks around the theme 'home' for the charity Shelter. A great cause and sounded like fun so I volunteered to do one for them!
To fit in with the 'home' theme my plan is to turn the block into a little stable... will have two horses heads peering over stable doors on opposite sides and give it a nice tile roof I think! 6cm really is TINY so not sure if I will be able to pull it off but expect I'll have fun trying!
If anyone has any particularly pretty stables that I could use as inspiration then I'd love to see them- drop me an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org! Thank you!
More info on the project here- http://www.facebook.com/notes/masham-arts-festival/home-art-and-craft-project-in-support-of-shelter/248595371840016 I think they are still looking for artists to paint blocks if anyone else fancies it!
