If a table design is really deteriorated then it's worth thinking about doing a new one. But don't talk about it as if it's just a paint job. These designs are people's art. Have some respect.

Yeah, I'd agree with that. I don't want to kill someone's art work, unless they most definately don't want it any more. Maybe people might want to hold onto their tables, give them to friends or sell them to make way for new designs?
There is a guy called Kenny who works uplfting the excess from charity shops who said he'd be happy to make drop offs to Forest if we need anything, so I guess we have an un-limited supply of furniture and bric-a-brack. I'll put his no. in the volunteer book incase anyone has any particular ideas of stuff we could use.

From what I understood from Kenny, it isn't necessarily an unlimited supply of tables. It was more of a 'I'll keep my eye out'??

In some cases, I think we are talking about deterioration, Magda. In other cases, it is time for a change. Sorry if the conversation sounded disrespectful, but I don't think anyone was intentionally suggesting that the table-top artwork is nothing more than varnish.

Lots of good artwork get replaced with something new at Forest. I thought the policy was to make sure the artist gets ample chance to record their art for posterity before it happens? Change is the opposite of death, and all that?

hey maybe you could sell off some of the painted tables and make way for new ones? Or otherwise I'd like to get my hands on them and replace them with plain ones? The wall mural is fine to paint over cos you can't remove it, but it seems strange to just paint over something beautiful when the option is there not to? Please don't, I'll have them!!!

Some of the table decorations are much more valuable than the tables they are painted on. Free tables are 2 a penny, so we could give away/sell the decorated tables and let artists decorate new ones, rather than just painting over lovely artwork.

I suppose in a way, painting over art makes it more precious, and the better the painting, the more of an artistic statement you are making by painting over it. And art created for the Forest should maybe stay in the Forest and not be taken home.

But it would be sad to lose forever some of the tables we have.

Also, don't we already have a table with a sun in the middle and various things round the edge?

have a look upstairs at the other tables and maybe get people to paint those. the negotiants tables are lovely and rare. maybe we can have a store of cool tables which, naturally, get moved around, destroyed stolen whatever? you know?
