Normally I feature artists, or crafts people who make items with my products... so today is a nice change, as I get to feature a collaborative group called 'Made in Newcastle' (http://madeinnewcastle.org/).
Nearly a year old, Made in Newcastle members have been spreading the word about arts and crafts in Newcastle's city centre with their 'pop-up' shop and workshops.
A recent workshop, 'Needle felting at Newcastle City Library', as part of Newcastle's Fashion week made use of some of my product... something which I am very proud of. I think it's really important to pass on craft experiences and so workshops like this that are aimed at beginners from all ages and backgrounds are great community activities.
If you live locally, do check out the website at http://madeinnewcastle.org for events and artist info.
Special thanks goes to Leeanne of http://sittingonthewall.com/, one of the Made in Newcastle team.
