Bottle Flowers

Today I did a workshop with the lovely children at Dean Valley Primary School in Bollington. We made flowers from empty plastic bottles and windmills from laminated magazine paper. The Bollington Festival is fast approaching and we were making decorations for the village's gardens.

The Big Green Festival

Last weekend I went to Chorlton's Big Green Festival with fellow embroiderer Emily Hayes to sit and stitch. The event was a big success with a huge amount of people attending to see performances, shop ethically and find out about green living in Manchester. Emily and I met some brilliant creative people who were interested in what we do. I was so pleased to find that quite a few remembered me and my work from last summer's Embroidery degree show. The nice ladies from Rubbish Revamped; a great Chorlton venture offering workshops using recycled materials, have asked me to be a guest workshop leader for them. Watch this space for details!
