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!

Yes: wouldn’t that be wonderful: Dedicated art and craft studio spaces in sheltered housing and in fact all communal housing?

Why not? 🤔

Some of the parts…

I play many parts in my role as an inclusive artist. These are some moments I experienced recently that reminded me of the constantly shifting roles I play at the ‘pop-up studio’ (and back in the ‘art cave’!)

News update from the art cave…

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…

We’re in the paper!

Yes indeed!

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?)
