Here is a great article by the BBC here that tells a little bit more about Good Story and the Festival of Creativity.
The weekend was an wonderful opportunity to meet all the other great Good Story applicants, to share experiences and see if we could help each other out. After a whole day of lectures on saturday, by a varied selection of inspiring business people, we all felt full of thoughts and ideas and reassured by the the experiences of our elders! Not only did we learn a lot, but we met loads of great people, felt part of a support network and sold some pieces too - there should definitely be more things like this for new businesses!! Well done and thank you Good Story!
We were there with all our Reclaimed Creations , picture fames and mirrors made from reclaimed hotel doors from central France, reclaimed and renovated vintage cinema chairs, creative lighting using discarded, yet beautiful, objects.
All the creations are made using materials that would have ended up in landfill, but with a good eye and some very exacting skills they have been brought back to life to make wonderfully ethical pieces for the home that can be treasured for many more years to come.
