Learning With Lovely Lace!

Well, THAT was an absolute pleasure!… I spent the day at Kirkby in Ashfield Library yesterday, working with a wonderful group of young people, who just so happen to be Nottinghamshire Library Service Apprentices (and they spent the day learning all about the joys of working alongside an Artist in their Library and some Lovely Lace!)  We got stuck in straight away; getting to grips with embossing, die-cutting, layering, inking, painting and embellishing to create individual pieces of lettered artwork.  The artworks will come together to form a collaborative piece which will become the title artwork for the Lovely Lace touring exhibition!

Lovely Lace1 Lovely Lace2Lovely Lace community workshops have been scheduled by Nottinghamshire Arts Service to take place in Libraries all around Nottinghamshire for the next few weeks.  The workshops are free to attend, run by awesome artists together with fabulous members of the Nottinghamshire Library Service team!

So, thank you, Library Apprentices, for a thoroughly enjoyable day and all your hard work!… and to add to your education, here are Morecambe and Wise in action!… (I can’t believe anyone is so young that they don’t know who Morecambe and Wise are!)
