We Did This

 We have been occupied, frustrated, annoyed and generally tearing our hair out  for the last couple of weeks making this film for a crowdfunding project which will be hosted on this site along with at least 7 other Derby based projects for the month of November. Take a look and see the projects featured at the moment. Our personal favourites are -

     We have been doing prep for some batik workshops next week with two schools.

A BIG THANK YOU to everyone who came and took part from 11am  - 4pm people were queueing outside the door.......we didn't sit down, have lunch, stop for a break or anything. We did however manage to take some photos........

This was a very well attended day with several other activities going on too.
 We cannot show any general photos of how busy we were as they would show vulnerable adults, but here are some close ups.
