Am quite excited to read about some upcoming events at Nottingham Castle at the end of this month, from 28 June - 2nd July. From the castle website:
Test your art-making skills during this week-long exhibition and related events. A rich assortment of painting, drawing and textile works from the Nottingham City Museums’ collection act as a starting point for your creativity. Add to the display and think about the different methods used by artists across the centuries to express their ideas.Am most looking forward to the stitching website with Laura Mccafferty, who I wrote about in an earlier post. Will be great to meet her and get some inside info on her creative process as well!

28 June, 5 July (daytime), 1 and 2 July (6pm - 8pm)
