Weaving into Wire Baskets

Anna writes: What an exciting programme! Thank you to Reesa and Barbara for putting it together. After the oohs and aahs of a brief inspirational slide show, everyone jumped in to transform wire baskets and lampshades into upcycled “objets” adorned with ribbons, beads and a variety of trimmings. We challenged our creativity, love of texture, and – of course! – our stash busting goals by adding the scarves, remnants, trimmings, buttons, and other items from our closets.

This was a great chance to play together and to learn from one another, young and old. Now the oohs and aahs are for the work of our own hands!
