How do we feel?

Handmade Books

Feeling Bookish at Darwen Library

The group at Darwen worked with Julia to make their own handmade journals and z books.  There was lots of pretty papers to choose from and we learnt some of the arts of bookbinding.

We thought these books would be great for special words, photographs or occasions that merit remembering..

We could have used our paper from paper-making of course! Maybe next time.

Feeling Happy at Mill Hill Community Centre

Happy Bunting

On Tuesday in Mill Hill, Little Miss Bunting taught us some new techniques how to make her signature bunting with no sewing! We were introduced to double sided bonding web which allowed us to put letter and shapes on to our flags.

We were happy (see pic) with our results and all wanted to try more at home.

We felt the Love in Blackburn Library

Unfortunately we were not treated to a workshop on rag rugging by Lucy but Janet and Nudrat brought us lots of different materials and because we were feeling the love, we made an embellished heart.

Everybody threw themselves into the task with great enthusiasm, look at the great results.

Lucy will be putting on her rag rugging workshop very soon, watch this space.
