Community Postcards summer holidays project at Great Yarmouth Library

Over the summer holidays I’ll be delivering ‘Community Postcards’, a project developed in collaboration with Norfolk County Council’s Library Service, plus funding from Enjoy Great Yarmouth. The sessions are free and are hosted at Great Yarmouth Library throughout the summer holidays.

Plus, I’m on the look out for postcards from Great Yarmouth. If you have some which can be used to inspire children’s artwork and adults reminiscence sessions, please get in touch!

To find out more about ‘Community Postcards’, including session dates, take a look at the project page.

Makers Month, The Forum Norwich. 13th and 15th March

I can’t wait to take part in my first Makers Month in March! I’ll be running two textile arts workshops – a drop-in to create protest banners and a bookable workshop to create an applique patch about ‘YOU’! The free drop-in session on Tuesday 13th March takes inspiration from the Craftivism movement to take a gentle, accessible approach to protest. For the bookable session on Thursday 15th March, take inspiration from passions in your own life, to create a unique textile art patch. To find out more info, visit the Makers Month project page.
