Open day

The shared workshop space i’m involved in , had its open day event last Saturday . The weather was against us and heavy snow first thing in the morning stopped us putting up the tipi outside  and the general cold and rain cancelled all the outdoor stuff we had planned . Not to be put off we reorganised and carried on regardless and hoped people would still come . And they did .

Mantas had the ‘Steenbeck’ out on display and showed some great old 16mm  footage to the crowd . Charlie Hound dog kept the rhythm going with his mix of dynamite old 45’s ( and also got a pretty good ‘harpoon’ tat on his hand ) . A steady flow of people all day made for a great open day .
