Workshops with Afrocats Fusion

I am working with Afrocats Fusion on a series of workshops with 14-18 year olds.  Afrocats successfully received funding from Children In Need to develop a project which works with young women aged 11-18 mainly from African, Asian and Eastern European heritage to create Arts and Craft work to tour to Children In Care residences across the region.They are a great group, they have made jewellery, explored different ways of using felt making purses, bags and cushions and learned to Crochet. They also came up with this poem:

Journey with us through felt, wool, thread and beads,

Everyone sitting together and working  with common needs.

Creating pieces full of colour and style

Jewellery, pillows, crotchet gloves to make you smile.
