Balnacra Arts by Vicky Stonebridge

20th sept. Ceangal. last working day

last day for artists to finish and document work. I had had a night back in lochcarron, arrived back mid morning to gairloch, did some weaving. then went to Badachro to help Anish with his artwork on one of the old boats there. It explores the changing economic hostory of the area, from fishing to tourism and our runaway destructive materialistic culture. while there i wove another basket, full of holes, lined it with heather to stop ripe blackberries and blue scabious flower heads falling out. A basket wirh holes? a useful filter, sieve, or easily lined as a container. blue, blue thoughts, the way we hang onto negative thoughts, we are in control of what we let in and what we keep. also write some poem/ words.

back to studio, hungry. lunch. got some help with the big structure back onto the beach, Anish & Ximena took photos of me in and around the structure, sandy wet fun.

more weaving.

meal at local residents, Mike & Shirleys house, very lovely. the way the community has got involved has been wonderful, really inspiring. Back to Lynn’s. work

Very annoyed at this vandal who's been cutting down trees that don't belong to them in a small copse of trees i walk through everyday. If they're poor and desperate for firewood there's tonnes of felled seasoned logs just 12m away. Or fallen trees blocking paths nearby.  Or other places not far which need thinning out. Some people have no sense of a place, no respect for nature, no regard for the environment or how precious native trees are. I'm going to track them down, i take trees seriously. 😢 🌲💕
