Closing event: Friday 30th March

A 3 week, Visual Audio Hub within the 3 galleries at St Margaret’s House – a residency between 3 AV artists to explore experiment and dive into the realms of lights visuals and sounds to develop immersive experience art forms.

The start of a collaboration to give space and time to three AV artists who normally meet and work on events in the music industry. The short timescale of Festivals and music events makes it always difficult for visual artists to test and develop their art forms, the set-up is short and the opportunity for musicians to have pre-production work rarely occurs.  

This 3 week residency will be the opportunity for each artist to share and use the 3 galleries setting up their own installations inviting musicians and other artists to collaborate and todevelop particular aspects of their practices.

Cushions with Zips & Piping

Friday 16 March
10:00 am - 4:00 pm

This workshop Cushions-zips-piping will show you how to make gorgeous and unique soft furnishings. Shop-bought cushions can be expensive but why pay out when they are actually quite easy to make. Learn how to make professional looking cushions with zips and piping to match your furnishings and you’ll never need to buy a cushion again. I’ll show you how to sew in a zip – a foundation sewing skill. Then we’ll look at a variety of decorative details such as piping, frills and flanges. Piping is covered in bias binding so the workshop will include how to make your own bias-binding too. That way it’ll coordinate with your other fabrics. Or you can use shop-bought. Then you’ll design and make your own cushion cover.
