The Good Life Experience 2016
In collaboration with Brui, we were asked to participate in The Good Life Experience, a family festival in Flintshire, North Wales. This is a festival that celebrates music, food, the arts and the great outdoors. It promotes the idea that it is the simple things that are worth celebrating.
Nick and I worked late into the night, a few days before the festival to produce some limited edition posters for the event.
We hosted screen printing workshops throughout the weekend, revelling in the excitement of festival-goers, and pushing participants to experiment with the printing process. Despite the fact this all took place in a field, people really tested the set up and pushed the results in exciting and adventurous directions.
The days were intense and we worked flat-out, determined to get as many people printing as possible. In the evenings, after the work, it was time to play. Drinks were flowing, and on Friday, a great show by Stealing Sheep put the whole crew in the mood to dance, setting the tone for a great weekend. Saturdays standout was an incredible and energising show from Diabel Cissokho, keep your ears to the ground for this guy from Senegal. We didn’t get chance to catch any music on the Sunday but hung around after the festival closed, to chat to other vendors, swap stories and enjoy an unusually warm September evening.
The Good Life Experience is a small festival, that packs a big punch. We’ll be back next time.
The majority of the posters sold at the festival but theres a few knocking about, i’ll work out a way to get them online. For now, you can email myself or Brui and we’ll send out a copy for you.
Thanks to Tash at LoveLuella Photography who provided us with some of these great photos of the event.
