Wyaston Workshop 2013: TWINCHIES

We held a day workshop at Wyaston on Saturday October 12th 2013 when participants could choose from 8 starter workshops which allowed them to sample various embroidery skills and to apply them onto a sketch book cover in the form of ‘Twinchies’, two -inch squares.  
The idea of the 'Twinchies' and applying them to the colourful covers of sketchbooks was Ruth Broadbent's (Branch Chair). Unfortunately Ruth was unable to be with us due to illness but contributed her sample books and ideas to the mixed media workshop.
Kit Smith was also unable to run the  Needle Felting workshop but her sample books gave inspiration to the students.
