Originally founded by Amy Brown and Jessica Galbreth, the Enchanted Visions Project inspires artists to keep creating. The project is now being administrated by Coriander Shea, with many different artists from around the world taking part. Each month a title is chosen and artists are invited to submit a new work based on their interpretation of that theme. The results are an inspiring mix of paintings which showcase the different artist’s imagination and creativity.Filed under Art & Illustration, Resources & Community | Comment (1)

The Fairyland Trust is a UK-based charity dedicated to inspiring children to reconnect with the beauty and magic of nature. Their aim is to create Fairylands, recreating habitats and making the land fit for fairies, places where children can experience real nature. They take their workshops, which include wing and wand making, fairy banquets, fairy books, and many more, to events around the country, allowing children to play creatively while learning about wildflowers, trees, faeries and nature. They also organise a hugely popular annual Fairy Fair in Norfolk.
But here’s the thing – the Fairyland Trust is run on very little money, and the future of these wonderful workshops and events is in danger. It would be extremely sad, both for the fairies and the thousands of children who experience their magic, were the Trust to cease their work. So now the Trust is inviting people to become Supporters. For a small monthly donation, Supporters will in return receive a workshop kit to make at home, a quarterly e-magazine for children and families, and advance notice and booking priority for all events.
For more information, and to download a Supporter form, please visit the Fairyland Trust website.
