Here is a link with an article and a short film regarding funding for the Museum of British Folklore http://www.itsnicethat.com/articles/film-museum-of-british-folklore
It is a lovely film. For those of you that do not know I recently donated my collection of woodcut prints based on British Folklore traditions to the museum and these will be featured in their next news letter.
This is a worthy cause as Britain has a rich tapestry of folklore traditions that have been neglected by many but should be celebrated by all.
For example Morris dancing has survived through thick and thin in some cases it was practically wiped out due to World War One and Two but thanks to a re interest in the 70s dance troops re emerged to keep this tradition alive.
In many other countries their folklore heritages are celebrated so why not in Britain?
Please take a look at this film
Fed up with the constraints of my other block I decide to throw all caution to the wind and unleash the liberating world of Cronky.
The wood is hard as hell to cut but it will also add to the rawness of this mask.
