FUN A DAY DUNDEE

Thanks for all the fun Dundee Fun A Day!

(It all started off on Hogmanay when somebody handed me a strange object and asked – “What can you do with this? Take it away and have a go!” So my Funaday project was finding out what I could do with a six foot shed skin from a boa constrictor!)

If you want to see what I did come along to the FunADay Exhibition this weekend.

It’s in WASP studios, Meadowmill, West Henderson Wynd, Dundee.  The opening night is on Friday 10 February from 7 – 9pm.  The Exhibition runs from 10.00am – 7.00pm on Saturday and Sunday.

Here are some photographs I took of the fun I had during the month.
