Maui Waui Appeal

August 29, 2020

Maui Waui is, as anyone who has been will agree, a wonderful little festival held in August. We’ve had the good fortune to have attended with the mobile exhibition for the last few years as it has many of the qualities and feel of ye olde fayres transposed into modern times..

Suffice to say in these strange and stressful times where our cultural lives and identities are in real jeopardy, they now need all the support you can give.

We’re a bit late with this post as they are right now doing an on-stream benefit this weekend featuring artists who’ve appeared at Maui. Visit their Facebook pages for more info or their homepage .

Their crowd-fund page is here : Maui Waui Crowdfund


(We were going to frame a full, separate appeal for Silas and his crew, but this is better than anything we could do…and there is also the added bonus of the appearance of a familiar face, a national treasure of the East…..)

Good news!…(Well for us at least).. The web address has now been sorted and no longer exists with those rogue pages from the main site riddled with betting links. Finally we can say the main address is now and only Phew…!

First of all many thanks to the organisers and crews of The Weird and Wonderful Wood Fair, FolkEast and Maui Waui for having the yurt exhibition attend once again.

All three turned out to be as good if not better than last year. FolkEast in particular is growing into a rather lovely festival with a great atmosphere as is Maui Waui, who again partnered  us with the  marvelous Foolhardy Circus.



We now have a calendar to offer for 2019. It’s a new idea for us and a way to share a few popular images from the galleries.

Laid out in bi-monthly pages with six photos chosen for their evocative qualities rather than their chronology, all printed on good quality A4 paper.
