Sewing workshop and Puppet blog

HelloG! Take a look at the Chapel Allerton Arts Festival Giant Puppet parade blog!

Heres and example of one of the mock up puppets artist and designer Tony Wade has created for year 5 students to start building next week. The head was made by children in previous workshops.

Yesterday I was helping out at Project Space Leeds with their Forties Summer Fete. It was a vintage affair with lots of nice retro clothing stalls,  antiques, cake, cream tea and home made gifts

Eleanor Snare and I lead a sewing workshop; we made a variety of fabric animals and monsters with visitors who only had to pay a pound to participate. We were very impressed with one girl’s multi coloured cat which she created completely from scratch with very little instruction from either of us!  Eleanor also made a dress by re-styling a striped t-shirt with some blue fabric, and a floral bag – photos to follow!
