It's been so good to be able to physically meet again in a socially-distanced manner in the bandstand. We were blessed with good weather and enough sunshine to carry out experiments with cyanotype paper, which is a photographic process using sunlight and water.
Almost 6 months since we were last together. This felt like a real celebration. We met in the bandstand in Morrab Gardens, Penzance where we were protected from the rain whilst being able to socially distance outside. We caught up with each others lives and recorded some percussion sounds. We ate cake that was safely prepared and individually wrapped. We hope to continue to meet in this way, weather permitting, until we are able to return to our indoor base at Breadline.
We've been posting what Roamers have shared with us during these weeks we can't meet. The blog on the left currently features our post card project (details in earlier post). There are also paintings and drawings and adventures to share from Toby, Suzi, Jon and Not Just Any Girl. Look under the "Film" tab above for three new videos!
