We’re pleased to announce that Rise & View Krew activities will be going ahead this summer!
Due to social distancing, we won’t be able to have physical sessions as we did last year, so instead we’re going to be delivering specially created packs to families in the Saunders Park area to make at home.
These will be a range of activities created by one of our talented artists which will be aimed at ages 5-8/9-11 and packs will be delivered to your door on 30th July!
These Art Packs are FREE, but you will need to register for these (max 2 per household) by 24th July 2020.
To have your summer sessions at home this year, please email: email@example.com for a short registration form
Thanks to both National Lottery and BHCC for funding this scheme.

Free workshops run by professional textile artist Rosie James include:
Using a sewing machine,
stitching and drawing with a machine
using collage in textiles
Rosie James is an artist working mostly in textiles. Her work explores the use of the sewing machine as a tool for drawing. Her focus falls mainly on people and the kinds of crowds that form when people gather, she is looking for the individual within the crowd. Her work also encompasses the use of the stitched line to create drawings which explore the whole world of stitch, textiles, fashion, craft etc.
The ways in which stitching and textiles figure in our everyday lives is a continuing fascination. Rosie using screen printing as well as machine stitching and applique to create layers of imagery. Recently she has become interested in the ways in which a line is created on the sewing machine and how lines are everywhere we look. These lines link us together.
