Week 2 at BA

This week we're going to visit Sarah Brooker's lovely exhibition of felts at the Corinium museum in Cirencester which tie in nicely with our seascape theme this half term. When we get back to the studio we'll make some traditional wet felt to stitch into. Preparation - finding shells & pebbles and making sketches.
