Hi de hi campers!
This month we gathered together to hear from Creative Director Greg whilst tucking into some amazing pies from Motion Designer Oz.
The performance by Scottish Ballet was infused with the choreographic stylings of the Pina Bausch Tanztheater Wuppertal, which led Greg to the outstanding documentary tribute Pina directed Wim Wenders:
Next we were introduced to the innovative designs of Fieldcandy, who appear to have cornered the market for creating eye-catching, alternative styles for camping enthusiasts.
Finally, Greg shared with us a poster that had caught his eye on the underground that, he explained, crystallized his attitude toward the creative process:
Which reminded him of Address is Approximate, a short film he’d found whilst wandering through the web looking for inspiration:
An excellently edifying talk from Greg!
Our tastebuds were taken care of by Oz who prepared an amazing steak and ale pie with a vegetarian alternative of feta cheese, spinach, sun-dried tomatoes and toasted pine nuts.
The recipe for the steak and ale pie is here and the feta pie was, I’m told ‘pure jazz’ onOz’s part, so you can go ahead and have fun with that one.
