It’s been a while since my last blog as I’ve recently been rather busy looking for a job after being made redundant in February. I’m now lucky enough to have found a new position at The Watermill Theatre, Newbury. They often host productions of Shakespeare’s works (the next one is ‘Shakespeare in the Garden’ on Sunday 7th August).
The Watermill is a resource for the surrounding community and beyond. Their aim is to spread knowledge and understanding about the arts and in particular the art of theatre, through the production of plays and related activities, including touring, working in schools, with youth and community groups and with businesses.
My Folksy Friday choice today is Shakespeare, and as usual there are plenty of Folksy shops offering an interesting array of Shakespeare related items, here are just a few…
Shakespeare Confetti – Bookity
This heart shaped paper confetti is handstamped from an old copy of Shakespeare’s plays. The paper is very thin and smooth, and they flutter wonderfully in the air!
Shakespeare quote Brass Cuff – Jezebel Charms
‘The course of true love never did run smooth.’ A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Act I, Scene I.
Shakespeare Corsage – Nellie & Elsie
Bright Yellow felt and paper flower corsage. Made from the pages of Shakespeare Love Sonnet books.
Shakespeare’s Comedies Notebook – Paperbound Notebooks
Hand-bound and covered with the board of The Shakespeare Game.
‘Eternal Summer’ Bangle – Red Kyte Designs
Hallmarked, Sterling Silver twisted solid bangle with oxidised stamped Shakespeare quote. The wording is ‘But thy eternal summer shall not fade’ and is taken from Shakespeare’s Sonnet #18. The oxidisation of the words is to make them stand out.
Blue Snake Tiny Book Sonnet #18 – Marcade Arts Press
This is a teeny tiny version of the Nag Hammadi Codex, so small it can be used as a book pendant. The pages are printed with Shakespeare’s Sonnet 18 ‘Shall I Compare Thee to a Summer’s Day?’.
