The Joy of Making at Wolverhampton Art Gallery

In addition to the Kantha workshop (below) put on by some guild members, some of our branch members volunteered to demonstrate their skills for the last three Tuesdays as part of the Art Gallery's  The Joy of Making exhibition. Machine embroidery, embellishing and hand stitching were demonstrated. Jean, Margaret, Lillian, Pat and Ruth all contributed their time to take part in this initiative. Those people who visited the exhibition were really interested in what they saw and asked plenty of questions and were hopefully motivated to go home and get started on something. Many were well impressed by what they observed. Hopefully some might attend a guild lecture.
The Exhibition goes on until 14th April  http://www.wolverhamptonart.org.uk/wolves/exhibitions

 The photos below show some of the items we were demonstrating today and Pat hard at work.
