Every year in the deepest depths of the Kent countryside designers, creatives and like-minded individuals receive a coveted ticket to the "Make Party".
After making it through the Tarmac nightmare of the Operation stack...we made it to the oasis of creativity and green.
Organised by Seb Cox and his brother, year on year is becoming larger and a highlight to the summer calendar.
By day everyone gathers to get creative in the woods with activities like:
• T-shirt screen printing
• Whittle a spatula with Barn the spoon
• Carving your own silver ring with The workbench (my favourite)
• Dine beneath the trees with Olivia Bennet; so you could some your own food!
• Or find a space for wood whittling or swoon carving
Workbench in the woods with Kirstie MacLaren and Katie Woodward; some serious concentration faces
The starting point....and Prosecco to get the creative juices flowing.
Ta da! Check out my instagram for the final silver ring posted to me: so cuffed when it arrived!
And by night the fun doesn't stop; with BBQing, and frequenting Liam Trenor Mojo bar.
Then boogying the night away under canvas (a 1954 army tent that has seen better days) begins! With a skilled set of DJ's that keep you on the dance floor until the early hours.
Then refuge into our tents to sleep the remaining hours away.
In the morning its all hands on deck for the clean up; fuelled by Seb, Brogan & team amazing and much needed bacon sandwiches and Tea!
Then like woodland imps we all disappear until next year!
Bacon sandwich and tea production line...curing all beer endured headaches!
All hands on deck.
Goodbye until another year!
