Carol Parker – Artist in Residence Update

By Carol Parker

I had my first day as artist in residence in Holbeach on Friday 12 April, based in Toto’s Shoe Shop. Although the town was fairly quiet due to the wet weather, I still had a steady stream of willing pom pom makers to contribute to the Blossom Forest in Carter’s Park for Transported’s launch event on Sun 5 May. I even had time to do some yarnbombing.

Many thanks to shop owner Dave Hudson who gave up part of his shop for me to work in and kept me supplied with coffee.

I’m returning Saturday to visit the ‘Pop in’ session for Age UK and then spend some more time at Toto’s……please pop in and say hello when I’m next in town on Tues 16 April from 10.30am, no pressure to make pom poms if you’re not in the mood, just sit and have a chat and I’ll tell you about the exciting things that are about to happen in the town!
