Inspire and Inform Workshop at Oscari

Curly a rose between two thorns!
Yesterday we were priviledged to have been invited to Oscari to conduct an Inspire and Inform Workshop and we must say we left feeling incredibly inspired as the quiet talent of this group was breath taking.
We started by saying a bit about ourselves and our own beginnings and mentioned what Purple and Grey can offer an aspiring artist maker. We then asked if anyone had anything they wanted to share with us and one by one hidden gems appeared from underneath the table! Just look at the quality of some of the work below. It was brilliant to see such intricate work and hear how it was made we are missing a picture of a large cross stitch that took five years to make! Thats dedication!

Oscari is an incredibly important for the local community  and the work they do is amazing the community spirit we felt was very moving and heart warming we had such a lovely welcoming time there.
