Bunting

3 Mar

menywod

I spent a lovely hour or so painting bunting at an event organised by Women4Resources,  a small organisation working with women and girls in partnership between Wales and Africa to promote education. Today was about promoting wellbeing and I loved just chilling out with women of all ages, chatting and doing some painting for fun, instead of for work. It took the pressure off. I based my little bit of bunting on the Welsh word “menywod” which means women. I got quite psychedelic.

There’s some confusion about the origin of the word “bunting”, with some sources citing it as French, others as Scottish. When I was little I thought it was a verb and wondered how you might ‘bunt’.  Apparently it is something to do with American baseball.
