An exhibition of arts and crafts was held in the village hall, and a scarecrow trail and competition was held along the Greenway.
There were 24 exhibits from Burton Green residents, plus 3 exhibitors who run classes, or hope to start in the Autumn in the Village Hall.
The weekend was part of the Warwickshire Open Studios biannual celebration of Visual and Creative Art. It is the first time Burton Green residents have taken part.
Just below are two short videos of the weekend's activities, and there are also two separate slide-shows showing scarecrows, and willow sculptures.
The first video shows and describes the exhibits inside the village hall. This video is presented by the principal organisers, Deirdre Vernon and Thea Gibbs:

The Scarecrow Competition
This is a second video showing the scarecrow trail along the Greenway. This video also includes reactions from a few of the people who I bumped into along the way....
This is a slideshow of still photos of the scarecrows...
Willow grown in Burton Green was used. The lead artist was Iris Bertz an experienced tutor of willow sculpture, who has taught in the UK, Germany, Norway and Brazil.
Residents took part over 2 days at Easter. The sculptures were stored and slowly dried for the event.
