Guy Mallinson another of the tutors from the "Mastercrafts" TV program brought his gorgeous parachute shelter along and was running spatula making workshops.
One of the great things about working at Glastonbury is that you get to go a few days before the public arrive and enjoy the build up before the chaos starts. It is known for music and there must be 100 stages for live music ranging from the huge main stages with 20,000 in the audience to a piano in a tent, or even in a field.
Many go for the big names from U2 to Beyonce but I love wandering and dropping in on little gigs on small stages. Whilst performances may not have the polished professionalism you get real passion and fun. Top score this year was Mumford and Sons playing a tiny campfire gig for about 250 folk in Strummerville a place where the spirit of Joe Strummer lives on.
We were there for 8 days and saw the dawn on 5, this is sunrise over the HCA area, Glastonbury is quite a nocturnal place.
Barn who came and helped me and demonstrated spoon carving.
I have lots of happy memories of time spent sat around the campfire with Guy, Sophie and all our friends and helpers, a week away from the computer in a field sharing song, dance and a good whisky is pretty good therapy.
