You may spot festive eating too - creative again.

In the afternoon Jacqui Hyman gave a fascinating talk entitled Healing Stitches. Jacqui told us about her inspiration as she has worked to restore textiles (mainly from the past) worked by Soldiers, prisoners, people in hospital and others.  Sometimes we become frustrated by our work but in the main it is a great source of relaxation and a sense of achievement - as the morning session demonstrated.
