Funded by Friends of Muir Housing we will be working with families from the Revoe / Central Drive area on Monday 14th December 6pm – 8pm.
The participants will start an outline of the letters and take the kits home to finish in their own time.
In preparation for the workshop we made up cross stitch packs with Mr Dee’s graffiti designs.
Cross stitch kits designed and prepared ready for the workshop in December.
