Get Creative at Olive's Nest with Brilliant Birds

Making Brilliant Birds at Olive's Nest

Friday was the start of the Get Creative Weekend. So Deborah New & I got creative at Olive's Nest, a super gift shop on Scarcroft Road, York.

We held our preview Brilliant Bird workshops in preparation for the Brilliant Birds Yarnstorm in Rowntree Park later this year. It was lovely to meet everyone who came along. Here are some of the makes...

#BrilliantBirds & Giant Leaves

...and quite a number went home to be finished off so we're looking forward to those birds flying in too!  We met up with some old friends but also had new people come and join us which was just perfect!  In fact we were chatting so much in the afternoon I forgot to take any photos.  I'll try not to let that happen again!

The Get Creative campaign is run by a group of cultural organisations to celebrate and support creativity. We certainly enjoyed getting creative!

Thanks so much to Gaynor at Olive's Nest for letting us roost there for our #BrilliantBirds Workshops and for keeping us fuelled with tea, coffee and biscuits!  We had a lovely day.
