We’re completely inspired by all the art being created at Illuminating York!

Over the weekend, there were several thousand people at the 3 sites each day,  and although it’s cold, we want to see more!  The soundtracks that accompanied the projections were fantastic, but for us it was all about the colours!  The idea of having a mix of really bright, vivid, clashing colours really appeals, especially when it’s set against the backdrop of the night sky – I’ll be using this idea for inspiration on my patches this week. The Wall of Light is a bit like seeing fireworks really with the constantly changing images – and we definitely heard some ‘oooooohs’!

We’ve had a few more patches in from eager craftsters now, and we’re really impressed with the standard.  As soon as we can get round to taking pictures, we’ll add some to the blog so you can see what people have been creating.  We’re also looking forward to our patching session at the weekend – we’re getting some tutors and friends together to have a few hours of crafting so we can start building up our patch collection!  Again, we’ll post some photos from this session on here as soon as we can.
