Friends of Home-Start enjoyed a different type of fundraiser last week 

Last week a group of thirteen adults enjoyed an Art Journaling workshop led by Textile and mixed media artist Paula Watkins

Paula kindly donated her time for this unusual fundraiser .Paula’s vision has always been to ‘Spread the joy of art to all’ and has an anything goes attitude!

Materials for the workshop were donated so as part of the workshop the participants were given sketchbooks

Creativity flowed around the room,  the adults were engrossed in the techniques and it was truly a refreshing experience!!!!
