Anne Kelly – ‘Travels in Textiles’
Anne Kelly delivered an exceptionally entertaining and much enjoyed creative workshop. We worked very hard to block stamp our fabrics, colour in with sharpie pens, cut and place our sentimental travel memorabilia on to our fabrics or paper, then to finally decoratively stitch it all together.
Our Junior group also had the same creative workshop on the Saturday.
