Workshop feedback

Making a Point!Posted by Janette Fri, July 26, 2013 17:31:09
When EAST run a workshop, one of our great pleasures is hearing how people are inspired, and this is particularly so when people are new to creating.

Earlier this year we ran two workshops at the Foundling Museum during their Fate, Hope and Charity exhibition and recently we heard from one of our young participants on how she had been inspired to design and create following her day with EAST.

Here is Thea's cushion, based on a design by Clarissa Hulse.

We would love to hear from anyone else who has been inspired.
