Beautiful piece made by the Savera Group

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.
