This year, for the first time, our lane is doing Advent windows to raise money for extras for our local school. The way it works is that each of us – or as many as possible – in the lane ‘unveils’ a decorated window right up to December 24th and they all stay on till … Continue reading Village lane advent windows
Artivive is a way of linking an image to a video without the need for QR codes on the work you’re scanning. Take a painting, for instance; you might want to add an animation or some clips of it being made, or maybe a thank you to whoever’s looking at it. A QR gives the … Continue reading Artivive
