Sheerness Blue Town, Draw:Stitch workshop

The first Draw:Stitch workshop funded by Ideas Test took place at Blue Town Sheerness a few weeks ago. The sun was shining the sky was blue, what could possibly go wrong! Well nothing actually we had a great day! We were met by Allison Young from the Sheerness Dockyard Preservation Trust who gave us a interesting history of the old dockyard church and explained to us some of the plans for the restoration of this beautiful building. We spent some time drawing from the church focusing on the whole thing and also on the fascinating details. Have a look at the Sheerness Dockyard Preservation website for details about the plans for the building and how you can get involved. 

 The afternoon was spent at the Blue Town Heritage Centre, where we turned our drawings into textile masterpieces using a wide range of threads and fabrics. The Blue Town Heritage Centre is a very interesting place with a large display of artifacts, photographs and models exploring all aspects of Sheerness History. Have a look at their website, they also have a cinema and a cafe so we were kept supplied with tea and cake all afternoon. www.thecriterionbluetown.co.uk
