Join artist Claire London for some wind charming at our stall at Dunstable Kite Festival. Claire will be running wind charming activities every day, based on ideas from Laurence Payot’s Dunstable Wind Charming Day.
Between 2013 and 2015 we worked with artist Laurence Payot to create Dunstable Wind Charming Day, a new artwork and folk tradition for Dunstable.
Interested in what makes a place and its people unique, Laurence worked with over 2,000 Dunstablians in the first year, seeking to define what was meaningful and important to them. The resounding answer was the wind. So the artist set about creating a new folklore for the town that celebrated the beautiful landscape and the wind that brings it to life.
This year artist Claire London will be reviving the tradition, join her at the Kite Festival to get involved.
