I have worked with schools and community groups on projects lasting from a few days to a year.
A six week course designed to give groups a chance to take a break from everyday worries , to explore, learn and create. Paticipants were introduced to the work of some inspirational textile artists and looked at their use of texture and colour in the first session. Next, starting from things they brought in that inspired or concerned them they made their own creations with paper, fabric and stitch. All materials used were ‘ordinay’ easily available and cheap but the results were quite extraordinary.
