CCAP visit Shipley Art Gallery

CCAP visited Shipley Art Gallery recently to explore the textile collection, with specific attention paid to examples of quilting. Julie Ballands from the Learning Team took time out of a busy day to talk to the group about the history of the Shipley collection.  This involved a hands on  activity using the fantastic education space, followed by a creative workshop with Louise Underwood.   Quilting has an amazing history which Louise explained beautifully, after which the group started their own piece  of  quilting work.  A great day at the Shipley with lots of inspirational ideas to take away and a bespoke behind the scenes tour of the archives in the basement.cram1 cram2 cram4 cram7 cram8 cram9 cram10 cram11 cram12 cram13 cram14 cram15 cram16 cram17 cram18 cram19
