Seasonal Sewcial with  

Kathleen Murphy aka Murgatroyd & Bean

Friday, 16 November

Kathleen Murphy is back at the yard:ARTspace for another Sewcial before the festive mayhem begins. Be assured it will have a seasonal twist and will get your creative juices flowing.

The Seasonal Sewcial will begin with each participant opening a small parcel, the contents of which will set the scene as the materials, theme or challenge you will be working on is revealed. Kathleen will guide you through methods for inspiring and practically tackling the task assisted by techniques from her own practice. The rest of the day is spent absorbed in exploring the topic with support from Kathleen as required.

 

£70 to include most materials
