Learning to sew is a purposeful activity, that can bring people of different age groups, cultural and socio-economic backgrounds together. Embroidery offers a therapeutic and relaxing way of expression, giving people the tools to explore their creativity and build practical life skills.
Jukebox Collective presents SUNDAZE; a day of creative activities, performances, discussions and more. Held at Grange Pavilion, the centre was transformed into a festival space with set design and lighting. Here I exhibited works alongside my drop-in embroidery workshops.
