More dragons

The dragon-boat festival had lots of fun things for children to do. Most of them seem to love getting their faces painted and there were some particularly artistic efforts on show, painted by volunteers from the Dockfield Road Creative Arts Hub. That's an interesting community venture, with a building that provides practical work space for a variety of artists working in different disciplines, as well as a theatre group called Q20 that specialises in event management and promotional entertainment. They were the group behind last year's Shipley Street Arts Festival, which I gather is planned again this year from 26 - 28 June.

They had a stall where you could make your own paper dragon, so I had a go at making one to post to my granddaughter. It's a long time since I did any colouring-in. I'd forgotten how soothing it is! I omitted to take a photo of my dragon before I parcelled it up but it was similar in concept to the one below.


  1. Nice to know about the dragon boat festival...

  2. Coloring is much like meditation -- coloring books for adults are popular over here right now.
