what better way to spend a wet wednesday than revisiting the whitworth art gallery?

we had a lovely morning ‘baking’ this batch of cupcakes with a group of ladies on their first visit to the whitworth. i was really impressed with the inventive decorations & colour combinations ! i really enjoy these workshops – it fulfills my childhood ambition; succeeding Valerie Singleton on Blue Peter !

thank you to ed watts for his invitation to cupcake heaven…

Bank  holiday weekend at the Whitworth art gallery – what could be better ? A select group of keen crafters gathered together on Sunday afternoon for a few hours creating, stitching & making. Everyone was keen to experiment & try something new, inspired by the wonderful, ‘ Walls are talking’, wallpaper exhibition at the Whitworth.
