Pinning – Workshop 26.04.2023


On Wednesday 26th April, the VFAA workshop was “Pinning”, we had lots of different leaves, various containers and many styrofoam shapes to choose from.  (The styrofoam shapes we used will be recycled in future designs so they will not end up in landfill!!)

Members interpreted the brief differently as you will see from the pictures below.
