QUAY ARTS – Clayden Gallery
Fri 25th Feb |10 – 11am & 1-2pm

Have fun sticking, hand stitching and even find out how a sewing machine works as we create our textile picture story. Mandy is a textile artist who paints with fabric and draws with stitch! She loves using fabric and stitch to tell stories, both in her own art practice and working with community groups.

Welcome to the IW Story Festival.

Friday 25th and Saturday 26th February 2022

It’s a special place for children and families to have fun together; where we can all CREATE, INSPIRE and IMAGINE.

 Stories are all around us; not just in books and poems and plays and songs, but also in the news and history and the places we live. Over two days, the IW Story Festival lets you get lost in stories of all kinds…

Our aim is to:

Let children and their families CREATE; whether through stories and poems, junk modelling or other crafts; to have fun together and discover new talents

Let authors, poets, actors, illustrators, spoken word artists and others INSPIRE you to create your own stories; to discover new worlds and new ideas

Let us all IMAGINE the amazing things we can do and the amazing things we can be.

What stories will you bring with you?
