A Stitch in Time

7 Dec

Over the last couple of months I have had the pleasure to work with members from the Avenue Craft Group and Crumpsall Craft Crewe to create two textile wallhangings entitled A Stitch in Time. The brief was to incorporate and showcase the many different types of textile crafting techniques and stitches that the members utilise, whilst also depicting local and well loved landmarks, both historic and modern.

I thoroughly enjoyed working with the groups and as well as learning much more about their local areas, was thoroughly impressed by the skill and stitching expertise of the group members. The resulting colourful wall hangers (that can be displayed seperately, or together) are not only eye catching, they also encourage the viewer (whatever their age!) to look closely to spot all the flora&fauna on display and also to see if the local landmarks in Heaton park and Boggart Hole Clough can be spotted.

Fun for all the Family at RNCM last Sunday

30 Jun

Claire, Fiona and I really had a great time last Sunday running a workshop as part of RNCM Family Fun Day inspired by MMU’s Manchester Children’s Book Festival. Here is just a taster of the exuberant headresses that were made, all with a musical and/or story theme.

Thank you to all our fabulous workshop participants and see you at our next RNCM Family Fun Day on Sunday 25th October 😉
