On May 18th I helped with a workshop at Ascention arts which is part of the Brighton and Hove Fringe Festival. It involved working with 6-14 year old children from the young embroiders group as well as local children. I was able to show them how to construct screen backed textile spirals which could be hung in their gardens. It was great fun. The imaginations and innate skills they showed with this was a pleasure to see. Most importantly, they had fun in working with mixed media including textiles at such a young age.
