Harrogate City & Guilds Show
Apart from finding time to stitch together Harrogate branch green rainbow squares, there was lots of lovely work and plenty of visitors over the week of the college exhibition. There were only two Part 2, Yr 2 students this year, but their work was exciting.
The Part 1, Yr 1 students are a talented lot and there was some fantastic artwork and stitching amongst their display of work. Well done. Finally, against all the odds, the Part 1, Yr 2 students really did manage to finish most of their work. There were felt foxgloves, a piano stool with a band of canvaswork stitches, fossil based work and much more. If you did not get there you missed a treat.
We will have a fantastic show next year with around 6 or 7 Part 1, Yr 2 students and 6 Part 2, Yr 2 students exhibiting final pieces. Can't wait. The Part 2 students have got a wide range of personal themes too, which should produce interesting work - Timble Ings, Robin Hoods Bay, Ferns, Sheep, Vegetables, and Elizabethan Embroidered Book Covers.
