On Thursday 13 and Friday 14 November Myvillages will be running a village shop in the Royal Academy Toadball room whilst screening their new Village Shop films to be launched on the toadball.tv site. There will also be a launch event on the Thursday evening with films, village food and shop talk. See attached pdf for more details.
Monday 8 September I did a ONE HOUR SHOP at the AR FOYER at ars electronica 2008. The production films of the frogbutterspoon and the horsemilksoap were screened. Some soap and one spoon was sold. The frogbutterspoon jumped over to the USA and will be in use in LA.
All done. We filmed the last bits of urban rural produce connections at Angelika's studio in Stoke Newington and Lawson Park miniature house by somewhere in the springy surroundings of Arnold Circus.
Massive Thank You to Annemarie - our cinematographer - for her very precise filming work!

We tried to catch the horsemilker, some users of horsemilkpowder and increased beauty by the horsemilk-cosmetic-line. We saw a lot of horses and not so much of the landscape, it can be very misty in Friesland. Annemarie shot clear footage in the COOPsupermarket, where we also tested the butterspoon.
Cousin Lysbeth (11) was one of our patient models in the horsemilk-cosmetic-line. She could tell the other day at villageschool that redoing handling several times is a models daily life. On her way home Annemarie took horsemilk cosmetics for her relatives as Chrismas gifts. All horses had during Christmas a small break.
Filming Peter painting the pots in his shop in Ambleside, which were made by Adam the day before in Lawson Park, then into the Honesty Box at the edge of Lawson Park garden, and described by Roy and Lelia from Lancaster.
Annemarie filming "Titchy-Kitschy" the miniature version of Lawson Park, put on some wobbly ladders in front of Lawson Park.
