Out & About in Notts, Part 2

New Art Exchange

The New Art Exchange is a lovely gallery which lies in Forest Fields, right near 'the Forest' tram stop. I volunteer there when I can at their workshops which are held most Saturdays, and are completely free of charge! They are family friendly but anyone is welcome to pop along. Last Saturday I helped out at a Modern Origami class, led by textiles artist Ruth Singer.

At first the end product seemed a bit complicated (one little boy exclaimed "That's impossible!") but it was actually quite simple and by the end of the class everyone had made an origami box using recycled paper.
