On a sunny Sunday in Sunderland...

A huge well done to all our artists and our participants, the items you produced in our workshops were fantastic, thanks to the helpful instruction of our workshop leaders.

We all had a fantastic day at The Bridges, and would love to come again, take a look at some of the days events:

Collage was an extremely popular workshop with all ages, some very happy customers were even making fathers day gifts:


Anna Welsh and Lauren Baker kindly stayed later than planned so that the enthusiastic Sunderland folk could continue with their projects. Some even stayed all day through to bookmaking:






Embroidery was "very relaxing and enjoyable" - a lovely way to spend a Sunday afternoon!





Thanks again everyone, I think we provided a fun and informative day. It was lovely to see people enjoying themselves, taking pride in their finished work and even passing on their own skills and making some new friends.


There is something to be said for taking the process of making out into the public arena, I am sure that everyone who was involved over the weekend will now have some more insight into the works they see on display in their local galleries. Well done everyone, what a success!

The Bridges...

Look out for our posters around and about in Sunderland City Centre. After a very productive few weeks, our contacts at the Bridges have offered us a fantastic space next to Starbucks where we can have additional seating for all of you crafty enthusiasts!

We will be somewhere in this vicinity...

Looking forward to seeing you there!
