The Virtual Village Show

The Island Makers invite you to join in with the IOS Virtual Village Show.

Each week we will set a category/challenge and people send me a picture of what they make/design. We will collate the entries and share and celebrate everyone’s success.

All ages are encouraged to have a go. If you can think of someone who might not have access to Facebook but who might like to try a challenge, please pass on the details when they are posted.

Some challenge examples are: Miniature indoor garden, Cross stitch monogram, Pebble Zoo, Calligraphy, handwriting a poem, Fabric animal, a zentangle picture, bake a Chocolate cake.

Some challenges may involve participants entering a design and then the Island Makers selecting a ‘Highly commended’ design and then making it for them. For example, Vickie Heaney, Print Maker, may set a task to design an image suitable for a two coloured lino print, she would give a few top tips to steer people in the right direction Then people would enter their designs and Vickie would choose a entry and make the print(s).

The first challenge will be with you in the next couple of days. We will keep the first couple of challenges simple as you may not have a wide range of materials and resources at the moment.
