In between ofsted (that's school inspectors) and tonsillitis my daughter and I went on a one day course down in Stafford with the lovely Emily Notman.
It was a gorgeous, sunny day and we spent the morning dying and bleaching a variety of simple fabrics, including lace.
The afternoon involved putting all our pieces together to create a wall hanging.
Mine is still a work in progress, but a nice one. I can take it out and add stitching or beading to it according to my mood! Sophie's is lovely and it was great to do something like this together!
One of the great things about doing a workshop at Unit Twelve Gallery, Stafford is the gorgeous exhibition space which is always filled with delightful things.
