Yesterday was our Robin Hoop Art Workshop, and what ‘sketchy’ fun we all had!!

 

 

Nine ladies spent a glorious Saturday getting in touch with their artistic side.

They built up their low volume backgrounds, a little matchstick quilting and lacey additions before bondawebbing their scrappy robins and starting the sketching fun!
