Brilliant Birds Fly into The Golden Ball

We had a lovely session at The Golden Ball pub making birds for the Brilliant Birds Installation in Rowntree Park.  It was our second workshop in #CraftandDesignMonth and our final one during the Voluntary Arts Festival.  Just one more workshop left!  Thank you so much to The Golden Ball for having us.

Everyone was very busy...

Gina, Vicky and Heather making owls, robins and blackbirds

James, Lyle & Rosie hula hoop weaving, pompom making & finger knitting
Dev crochets a parrot

James took a shine to this bluebird and made a pompom bluebird too...

Remember Anna's cute blackbird from the workshop in Rowntree Park Cafe?  Well now he has a friend...

Sarah's little girl was very well behaved and didn't disrupt her & Dulcie's stitching at all...

Vicky's robin even has a nest

Kate popped in with a delivery to complete the workshop's fledgling flock...

Quite a flock!

Thank you to everyone who came - we couldn't do it without you!

Our final #BrilliantBirds workshop of Craft & Design Month is at The Winning Post on Monday 15 May from 7-9pm.  Can't make it? Don't worry, you can still make birds at home or with friends.  More details about the project here.  Find patterns here.  Completed birds need to be returned to Rowntree Park Cafe by Saturday 10 June 2017.  Happy making!
