On Thursday 4th December and Saturday 6th December, 11am - 5pm I will be demonstrating free-machine embroidery techniques at Ikon Shop @ Ikon Gallery, Brindleyplace, Birmingham.
I will be embroidering your special message, design or
dedication onto cards and wall hangings, making a unique Christmas
gift, prices from £2.95.
Ikon Shop, as well as being Birmingham's only specialist art book shop
is a great place to find cards, magazines, jewellery, books and music by local
authors and bands and gifts that are just that little bit more
interesting and different than those you would find on the high
There are lots of other events happening too this week at Ikon. On Wednesday 3rd December in the evening, its the Art Bus when you can travel for free and visit six Birmingham art galleries – Ikon, The Barber Institute of Fine Arts, RBSA Gallery, mac Birmingham and Eastside Projects and Parkside Gallery.
Each gallery stays open late for Christmas shopping, free gallery tours
and festive refreshments.
On Thursday 4th December there is afternoon tea with a tour of the current Imran Qureshi exhibition, followed by festive tea and cake courtesy of ChangeKitchen. Then on Saturday 6th December it's Family Saturday which is open to all ages (families and adults alike) to drop in between 1 - 4pm and be inspired by the current exhibition to make some original artwork.
In fact a really busy week all round at Ikon so come along and join in all the festive fun.
