Cooperatives Fortnight

We worked at the Cooperative Store on Burton Road in Derby, to promote Cooperatives Fortnight.
We asked customers why they shopped at the Coop and asked them to write it on a leaf for the display.
We had a very good morning.

RHS Chatsworth - Well Dressing

We spent a busy 5 days working at RHS Chatsworth delivering 'Have a Go' workshops at the show for visitors. The theme of the show was 'Wellbeing' and 'the 5 senses', so we created a mandala design and used traditional well dressing materials as well as cumin, coriander and cardoman seeds which gave a lovely aroma.
