Oh dear, nearly another year gone and I've not up dated, new years resolution is to keep this blog up to date!!
It's been a busy year of making and selling at some great fairs. The Christmas market that I organised for Manchester Craft Mafia was a great success. It was held in the lovely venue of The Whitworth Art Gallery. Hopefully we will be asked back again this year.
My workshops are going great. I've continued with the weekly ones in Liverpool, for Alcohol Service Knowsley with a lovely group of people. Have continued to do some great sessions with year 10 at Bury Church, making textile fruit and veg!!
During the summer I worked on a fantastic community project in Salford, all about the Bridgewater Canal. The final piece was a wall hanging displayed in Salford Museum and Art Gallery, soon to go on tour in venues around Salford!
Another school venture was a heritage lottery funded project at Cadishead Primary School, making a wall hanging all about Chat Moss. It was a lovely week spent in a fantastic school, working with year 6 pupils. The hanging is now displayed in the entrance hall.
