The good ship starchgreen

What a great day! The rather unlikely University of the Arts Alumni Summer Fete, held on the rather incongruously named Parade Ground at Chelsea School of Art (I'm intrigued by the idea of the trooping of the art students...). The weather was hot, with a sprinkling of rain, and the crowd were, well, arty. We sailed our Starch Green ship on the sea, we printed t-shirts, made books, iced delicious dog-shaped biscuits, arranged flowers, ate chorizo, chocolate ice-cream and strawberries, and helter-skeltered.
Polly had her nails painted with cup cakes - yes they are paintings not transfers.
Ellen made an origami chameleon with eyelashes. There were even dinosaurs roaming - and that's not just the older alumni.
