For the Everybody’s Reading project myself and Mahsuda worked with the Savera Centre in Leicester for a number of weeks and it culminated in a fantastic exhibition at the Pedestrian gallery in Leicester last week. The final piece hangs in the window and is a beautiful patchwork of ideas, needlework, painting and drawing.
Believe it or not we made an Indian sweets jigsaw. All the women in the art group were fantastic and we made a very exciting piece!
The garden club wanted a piece of art for their school garden so ourselves and the pupils of St Harduphs school in Breedon made this amazing piece from painted tiles….
100 tiles now complete and varnished by the children of Ibstock Community college. Thank you Sam McCarthy for your help, cant wait to get the mosaic piece on the wall!!
Some amazing work from the everyone at the Savera Centre in Leicester where myself and Mahsuda, a writer, are working on the Everybody’s Reading project….

We intend to use both of these wall projects for forthcoming workshops…
