hudson street fair

The street fair was a great success. Despite forecasts of rain, the weather held out until about 90 minutes before official closing time. The streets were full of people and the artist demonstrators at Mouche Studio Gallery were kept very busy sharing our techniques. There was a music festival going on as well and we were close enough to one of the stages to hear some great music. A fun day!

Hudson is a town of about 5000 people so our two main streets are not that big. This is one of them, blocked off for the street fair.

Me at my booth demonstrating my cast paper techniques. Got a bit of a sunburn!

Melissa and her mosaics. Is that a nipper in her hand?

Joanna with her funky safety glasses and her trusty torch forming a glass bead.

OH I wish I could have gone. I just love street fairs. It brought back a fond memory of when I used to go to one held annually on the beach where I lived...sighhhhhh. I wish I could live there again. Someday.
