Kestrel Makes a Home in Topiary Figures!

Not only have our topiary figures found a new home at Farmeco Community Care Farm, but it looks like a kestrel has decided to make a home out of the figures!

All four figures are now back together at the farm, and they have attracted so much attention that the farmer wishes to keep them indefinitely, which is fantastic. The farm is near Bingham, Nottinghamshire and they are visible from the road.

Thanks to Simon at Quercus for the info about the kestrel.

LittleBigPlanet Handcrafted Christmas Tree Promo Video

This is the official LittleBigPlanet 3 Handcrafted Christmas Tree Promotional video by PlayStation.

You can just see us setting up if you pause it and squint really hard! Filmed in real-time of course!

Also, check out how the "Twitterverse" is responding to #LittleBigChristmas

Handcrafted Fabric Christmas Tree at Old Spitalfields Market

Yes, Christmas is imminent and to celebrate the release of the PlayStation game LittleBigPlanet 3, Shipshape Arts were commissioned to build a giant fabric Christmas tree in Old Spitalfields Market in Shoreditch, London.

There were lots of celebrities milling around. We managed to get this shot of one of our favourites, Charlie Brooker!

Originally intended to only be up for one weekend as part of the promotion, Spitalfields loved it so much that they have decided to keep it there for the entire festive season! So, it will be up for all of December and if your Christmas shopping takes you in that direction, make sure you take a peek!

A special thanks goes out to Pirate Piers' mum, Ann, who hand knitted us a bespoke Sackboy to sit on top of our fabric Christmas tree. What a clever lady!

UPDATE: There has been lots of press around the tree, so just put those keywords into google like "playstation christmas tree spitalfields" and all the articles come up about it, including a bit from the Daily Mail.
