BlendED project

This project is almost coming to an end, we have worked with 2 youth groups in Heanor and Ripley for 9 months, creating artwork to sell at different markets for Christmas presents.
We held one stall at Heanor Market recently, it went very well and the artwork received a lot of attention.
Here are some images from the workshops and the selling event.
