FELTING FUN AT THE COMMUNITY ARTS PROJECT at ISLAND ARTS CENTRE!!
|LOTS OF HAPPY FACES|
Deidre led the team of Deborah, Helen, Mandy and Sarah alongside lots of our members who had volunteered their services throughout the week.
Throughout the week there was a great sense of fun but with a serious side to ensuring that the work on the hangings was core to the whole project.
Images of people to be incorporated into the hangings
These sumptuous flowers were created by participants who were able to take them home and enjoy them as part of the project.
These pieces were all designed by the group and will appear in the final hangings.
As you know the images represent various things within the LCCC area which people felt were important aspects of life in the Borough.
Sarah brought along some of her own homegrown flax and gave a great input on how its grown and made into linen thread. Again we're so lucky as we will be using some of Sarah's own linen in the hangings.
A huge thank you to the Island Arts Centre for sponsoring Feltmakers North to take on this great project as the kick off to our 10th year celebrations and of course to all the very hard working community groups and finally to our great team of tutors Deirdre, Deborah, Helen, Sarah and Mandy and to all our volunteers - we couldn't have done it without you!!
