Oriental Museum Workshops resume
After many months of lockdown we have finally resumed our bi-montly workshops at the Oriental Museum in Durham. The first was entitled 'Junk Journals', and yes that means making journals out of junk: junk mail, ribbon, catalogues, scrap paper, lace, photographs, doilies, just about anything you can get your hands on. Although numbers were restricted we had fun, chatting and just being creative. What the journals will be used for is anyone's guess, but the participants now have a good idea what to do with all of that junk that comes through the door.
