The Forest of Possibility – workshop in Skipton

I went on an adventure last Saturday to Skipton, in North Yorkshire to run a workshop as part of The Forest of Possibility exhibition. The exhibition is touring the region until August, next stop Thirsk in August where I’ll also be doing a workshop.

Here are few pics of the exhibition

It was really great to see the work in situ. It’s a lovely exhibition.

And on to the workshop.

It was really fun, they were a really enthusiastic group and worked really hard. Everyone made a couple of birds in the 2 hours we had.

I love giving these workshops, it’s really great to share what I do and then see where people take it. To see the ideas forming of how they can use it and adapt and change things for their own work.

Here are a few pics of the afternoon.
