I have just finished a series of workshops which took place at Jubilee Library in Brighton. These were organised by Strike a Light to commemorate Brighton in WW1. More information here. The workshops took the form of drop in sessions for young people from the ages of about 15-25.
We had about 4 or 5 people join in at each session, and make some stitched drawings of Brighton buildings, soldiers, nurses, lilies, planes etc.. Plus others who came along to watch! Being in a library meant that we attracted a bit of attention, with the sewing machines and piles of fabrics. I was great that so many boys joined in, and were really keen to carry on at home. One of the boys came to 3 of the workshops and even got himself a sewing machine on freecycle so he could carry on at home.
Here are some pictures taken at the workshops, I am currently putting the final piece together and will post pictures of that when complete. (These photos below taken by Tracey Gue)
