V&A class 17sept12

What an exciting day at the V&A’s Art Studio this Monday 17 September in the Sackler Centre! There was a definite buzzing excitement due to the many¬†design festival¬†displays and activities in the museum.

We welcomed a lovely crowd of learners keen to get stuck in with my reclaimed paper brooch project, usingV&A leaflets in the brightest of colours, brass eyelets and stainless steel pins. A few hours later, some beautiful pieces started to emerge, some of them very neat, some exuberant, all of them individual. Being a drop-in workshop, visitors could come and go as they wished, and while some stayed for hours producing many pieces, most seemed to thoroughly enjoy their making experience!

There are many free workshops running every day this week at the Art Studio to celebrate the Design Festival, including fashion illustration and stitching, I might go back and take part myself! Full listings available here.
