Skeletons, Vampires and Little Monsters at Dalston Eastern Curve Garden.

Sunday saw us reach Dalston Eastern Curve Garden and what an amazing space it was. Anyone passing remotely near this space should peak through the door near the huge mural opposite Dalston Junction Overground station and enter a Narnia-esque portal to the only bit of green and foliage you will find for a long stretch of East London.

We were looked after so much by our hosts Marie and Brian and all of the workshop participants throughout the day were offered coffee, croissants, homemade soup with bread, crisps, cake and popcorn!!!
The garden was protested for by Marie, Brian and other local residents in order to save the last bit of green-ary from property developers and is lovingly maintained by them seven days a week which is clearly a lot of work, but looks amazing and is even growing its own vegetables.
We were joined by a large amount of people who wondered into the space including two young garden regulars who terrorised kelvin for the majority of the day. As soon as their young vampire teeth and skeleton masks came out we knew the final film was going to be something special!

Thanks very much to everyone who came and took part - it was another fantastic day. If you are in London next friday and saturday come to the Southbank and join us for the Big Draw followed by the De La Warr Pavillion in Bexhill...
