The Big Green Festival, Beningborough Hall, York - 25 & 26 September 2010

Beningborough Hall and Gardens, York
After the success of the Makers Fair at the Saltaire Arts Festival a few weeks ago, I've been working flat out to make more stock before this weekend's two day festival!

Quernus and the Snails are taking part in the National Trust's Big Green Festival at Beningborough Hall and Gardens, near York this weekend. It sounds as though it will be a great weekend out if you're over in that neck of the woods - it's a celebration of all things green for greener living.

Here's a sneak preview of some of the new wee creatures that will be on sale this weekend.

Rainbow Scarf Cats

It's been a bit of a rainbow week, with added purple, as you can probably tell :) And the work continues - I'll be making a few special green creatures in honour of the Festival - pictures to follow shortly!

In fact, there's a lot of exciting things happening with Quernus and the Snails just now - I'm working on a new website, as well as a lovely new logo. My wee creatures are now appearing in a number of new outlets - these are very exciting times indeed!

Hope to see you at the weekend!


  1. Thanks Kirsten! I do a bit of tweakery with a program I have on my PC which helps a bit but aren't these dark days awful! Your new pieces are all just wonderful. Love the penguins! Adorable : )
