This is a card design (painted with real tea!) by me for the charity Contact the Elderly. Volunteers host tea parties for isolated older people and several designers were invited to produce thankyou cards for the volunteers. They have now been printed and will be on sale through the charity later in the year.
In March I ran a series of community knitting workshops with The Old Sweet Shop gallery, funded by Arts About Wandsworth. We had about 23 people taking part aged from 8 upwards, all designing and making tea cosies for an exhibition that ran at the gallery from 27th March to 5th April. See www.theoldsweetshopweb.com for lots more pics. I made an ice cream tea cosy for my ‘Beryl’ teapot, and we also had a cemetery, a cauliflower, a crown, a seascape, a bomb and many other wild creations.
