The Colonsay Festival of Spring 2014 - 3 Weeks of Spring Things
Once again the festival was a very sunny success and as usual the programme was jammed packed with opportunities to learn more about the secret lives of Colonsay's Seabirds, the RSPB reserve on Oronsay, the island's diverse flora & fauna and a chance to visit some of the less well known areas of the island. Alongside all these outdoor activities we were running many workshops including Photography, Stone Carving, Felting, Knitting & Crochet, Collage, Bread baking, Savoury tart cooking, Fabric dyeing and Glass work. For the evenings there was a variety of talks, shows & music.
Ceòl Cholasa, Colonsay’s Folk Festival, is held in mid-September each year and features internationally acclaimed artists from Scotland and many other places furth of Scotia's shores
