The first of many parties in Edith the Static Caravan, featuring suitably 70s party food and an intense game of  hide and seek.

…seeing the results in the morning.



We embarked on our own project….afir4afir2

… and installed it in the Stream Gallery – only accessible by getting in the stream.

Word got out about last years’ Merzpies so when it was our turn to cook, we made…. pies.



We held our Private View with pies in the woods.


Other activities included show and tell in the Library Yurt…


Left-Over Kake.  A new piece for The Cake Room at the back of the Merz Barn, made from Summer School participants’  left-overs: grass twists, wood slices, Egremont colouring, assorted wooden arrow boards.



Mel Deerson’s stage directions, chalked up for the benefit of the incoming Alt MFA and MilesKilometros artist groups, should they find themselves at a loose end during their residency at the Merz Barn.


Camping by Harry Pierce’s Victory Gates for a fully emerzive experience.
