On the Road: Kilmarnock

Last week, our On The Road workshops brought us to Kilmarnock, where tutor Alison Mitchell and artist Steven Reilly delivered a workshop in the One Stop Shop.

"Steven Reilly and I drove down to Kilmarnock on Thursday evening.  We were heading for The One Stop Shop which is run by the National Autistic Society.  There were 7 willing bag embellishers there, aged from 14-24.

We had brought some tote bags and a big bunch of assorted fabrics to apply to the bags. I'd brought a load of books and printouts of magnificent and interesting subjects but none of these were used. Each person came up with an idea for their project and lots of great bags were made!

Thanks to everyone for the nice welcome,  lots of great chat: walkie talkies, local farms, gemstones and embarrassing moments!"

If you would like for us to come to your club or group and deliver a free workshop, please get in touch at info@project-ability.co.uk or 0141 552 2822.
