Introducing our ‘coronaquilt’ project
How to make your squares the right size
While we are all in isolation or socially distancing ourselves, we’re looking for new ways to stay in touch and keep our creativity going. The ‘Coronaquilt’ is one project some of us have taken a fancy to. It was started by the Art Refuge project: https://www.artrefuge.org.uk/corona-quilt
You can contribute anything you want using any materials; drawing, painting, patchwork, clay, collage or even a photo. Each piece must be a square 21cm x 21cm so that we can put them all together when we are able to get together again.
If you would like to take part, you can contribute your digital photos directly to the Art Refuge quilt or you can contribute to the same project along with the Pop-up Studio.
Either way, let’s get making!
Making is connecting!
I used to do an extra clean up every time we had visitors but now I’m doing it all the time for an invisible visitor. Strange times.
Yes: wouldn’t that be wonderful: Dedicated art and craft studio spaces in sheltered housing and in fact all communal housing?
Why not? 🤔
“Lets get to work!”
Can’t believe a month has gone by since I last posted! I’ve been hard at it taking the Art Lady pop-up studio on the road for creative art workshops.
Here are some pictures of the wonderful work made at some of the sessions…
…and I was thrilled to learn a new technique from a visitor to the pop-up studio table at Robert Lodge in Whitehawk last week…
Yes! Another article about Art Lady!
This time in the February edition of Brighton Viva magazine.
Charlotte Harding has written this wonderful article in The Brighton and Hove Independent about our art group!
If you’re in Brighton or Hove this week you can pick up a copy in the library and some shops (I think Hisbes might be one?)
