Art Car Bootique

Afternoon all! Long time! I’m hoping my post will become much less intermittent now and all the craziness will be dying down.

This past weekend we had fantastic weather here and Cardiff and I went to check out the Art Car Bootique at Chapter Arts. I went to this event last year too and can highly recommend it for a great day out with the kids or friends.

There is everything from bands, face painting, crafts, art, beer from around the world, as well many other things. Oh, I almost forgot all the delicious food!

This year there was a bit of an EU referendum theme. Eddie Izzard was there giving a talk on the UK staying. I don’t remember there being any sort of a theme last year.

We had a blast, the weather was great, bumped into friends, there was a great vibe and we will be going back again next year!

I was lucky enough to a few photos right after Eddie Izzard spoke so most people were still near the stage, the place was packed! Again I would highly recommend this as a day out.

Made in Roath – Made in Spring

Happy Summertime! Due to life craziness (I won’t even get into it!) I haven’t been able to post about anything at all, but I’m back!

Back in May I attended a mini street festival that was part of the Made in Roath events happening in Cardiff this year. There was a music stage that featured musicians as well as DJs, loads of cool arty/crafty things to see and do and quite a bit of yummy food.

I’d have to say that if I had to pick a favourite from everything on offer it would be very difficult. I really loved taking part in something that was called Bike Art. There was an old drum attached to a bike, when the bike was used it would cause the drum to spin. I got to pick colours, drop them on a piece of paper that was inside the drum and then watch my paint become art. It was super cool!

It now hangs proudly on my wall.

There was free personalised poetry, art projects for kids and a great atmosphere. I will be attending future events and will hopefully be taking part in some capacity. I would highly recommend checking out some of the events if you’re in the area. I was very impressed!
