SCULPTURE BY THE SEA UK FESTIVAL 2009

CERFLUN AR LAN Y MOR DU GWYL 2009

Artists:Ami Marsden, Sara Holden, Adele Vye, Patricia McKenna, David Pitt and Owen Griffiths

On Day Four of the Festival, the artists awoke to the sound of torrential rain, which unfortunately continued all day. Not to be detered, they gathered at the beach, clad in waterproofs and put up a token windsock /sculpture or two.

Wooden ships on the water - or rather the sand!

Willow dream-catcher by St. Helens Primary School

Made at pre-festival workshop with Patricia McKenna.

The weather did not deter the waterproof clothing clad artists from making their art. A few keen festival -goers even turned up.

Eventually, at about 1.00 pm, as the weather worsened, the event had to be cancelled for the day and the artists left to consider sculpture ideas for the next day. They were hoping that the weather would be kinder to them the next day!
