September Workshop 2023
Our first Demonstration/Workshop of the MAS year got off to a flying start with guest artist Patricia O' Brien. She spent the first hour showing us how she produces her lovely and colourful prints. Then we all had the chance get our hands dirty experimenting with her techniques and producing many satisfying and creditable pieces of work. Great fun was had by all and Sue will definitely feature in one of our future programmes.
