Lok Virsa: Good Vibrations-Buttons, Beads and Birds

Sonia Sabri Company are running a workshop on Saturday 20th February at 3pm. Using the rich colours & shapes of birds & other animals depicted in Persian Folk art, we’ll be making our own bold, bright & sparkly craft!

Using the rich colours and shapes of the birds and other animals depicted in Persian Folk art, we will making our own bold, bright and sparkly bird, and abstract shape hangings that we can display in our windows; hopefully bringing a bit of colour and sparkle into our homes.

Please have a look around your house, and gather any scraps of material (felt or cotton is best- but anything will do) wool, ribbon, string, beads, old bits of broken jewellery, sequins you can find. You can use old tea-towels, socks or anything that you know is no longer needed- the more colourful the better. If you have any old bangles or empty rolls of sellotape please hang onto them too- they will come in handy! You will also need a fork.

Workshop will be delivered on ZOOM Pro. All times are GMT.
