Eurocultured, Sara Han & Spearfish
What a fantastic weekend!! I feel exhausted., Went to a wedding on Saturday which was great fun and then Sunday and Monday was Eurocultured festival (http://www.eurocultured.com). Sara Han (http://saralichouhan.com/) and I did some tee shirts and tote bag workshops, it was EPIC!!! and great fun, we were only supposed to have 12 participants, but we were over subscribed by at least 50percent. AT least. We used fabric paints, applique, stencils, freehand, fabric pens. Spearfish (http://www.spearfish.co.uk/) were great, they provided a lot of materials left over from previous workshops, so it felt like real recycling, also we hired a badge making machine that we used a few weeks previously at Museum Of Science And Industry, I haven't posted any photo's from that yet, but I shall...The badges and the bags were made using remnants and scraps, it was fantastic to see how creative everyone was, we got a real mixed bunch of ages and abilities, it was a great vibe, shame my ironing board packed it in though!! Plus the workshops times changed, ah well...It was a good un anyway! Have a look...We had some AMAZING volunteers too! Bethan, Jacky and Ange what hero's!!
