Another great day was had with Maggie; next time we’ll be doing some hand embroidery in the Butterfly workshop on the 14th July.
At the Confetti workshop we made these bright and beautiful pieces combining machine embroidery with a bit of imagination!
Coming up next is “Spider’s Web” on 23rd June.
Yesterday marked the beginning of this year’s Braintree Summer School, with Maggie Harling’s Leaves: Machine Embroidery workshop. Here you can see some of the fantastic work created by the students!
All of the artworks that were part of the Braintree Open Art Exhibition are now featured in an online gallery, which can be found here:

The Braintree Art Trail has begun, with work by local artists on display in windows around George Yard Shopping Centre in Braintree.
You can find an online copy of the map by clicking here, or when you’re in town you’ll be able to pick up a map from outside the front of the George Yard Management Suite (just on the left after you enter the shopping centre from Bank Street). From there you can begin following the trail!
Don’t miss out on our competition, which will give you the chance to win a full term of weekly classes in any of the classes we run in the Community Centre – any of the BBCA classes listed here (link). For your chance to win, join our Facebook page (@BraintreeCommunityCentre), and then share a picture of yourself in front of your favourite display in the Art Trail with us. You will then be entered into a random draw at the end of the Art Trail.
