Fantastic morning spent in HMP YOI Low Newton with textile artist Kate Jackson and the women working on the Dilly Arts' quilting project – some beautiful work. Photos to be shared on Dilly Arts' website in due course. So pleased that some of the quilts are already finding their ways home to the women's children and families – now developing plans to extend and widen the project over the coming months including hopefully supporting a mentor programme and staff professional development…. And increasing our participation base as there's so much enthusiasm from the women to get involved!
Our huge thanks to the wonderfully talented Kate Jackson and all the staff supporting the project, not to mention the women who are devoting hours and hours to this work in session time and on their own!
