Egg Fest – Drop In
Sunday 25 March 2018, 10am -4pm

Drop in to the barn at Stonehouse, Vicarage Road, Potten End, Berkhamsted HP4 2QZ to see a unique display of blown duck and goose eggs, hand-decorated by Romanian village women. Women's groups have been formed and trained to enhance the quality of their longstanding traditional art, and the craftswomen have been paid a fair price for their creative endeavours. No obligation to buy, but prices are very reasonable. A bowl of eggs on the table at Easter looks fantastic, and these are calorie-free!

And…exquisite scarves, shawls, oven gloves and exfoliators, hand-made from Giant Himalayan Nettle fibre by Nepalese hill tribe women. This is part of a community project that delivers electricity from local rivers, clean water, smokeless stoves, and fruits and vegetables grown in low-cost bamboo-framed greenhouses. Project images on display.
