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.
