Here are details for Sunday's Art In Nature Festival happening at Oakland's Redwood Regional Park.  You may have met Laura Inserra at the CELLspace Expo for Independent Arts.  She has put together an awesome festival with 100 musicians and artists participating in this interactive day!

It  will also be home to the next Crafters  Local 415 make 'n' take gathering!  Laura's invited me to set up some  crafty supplies, share some techniques, and just enjoy making stuff with  you all.  Look for other artists from the CELLspace expo as well!

There  will be no food vending or sales that day.  It is a purely free and  interactive event.  What project are you working on now?  Can you bring  some knitting or collage materials and enjoy making art in nature?  And  pack a lunch too!
