Access Art have been organising the Share a Bird Project - where artists gift a bird and this is in turn gifted onto a school to provide inspiration for the children. Access Art is an organisation that aims to inspire and enable high quality visual arts teaching, learning and practice. One of my machine embroidered magpies is winging his way to join their flock of beautiful birds and I wonder where he will end up. Along with the magpie I have also included an embroidered magpie feather and a small handmade sketchbook filled with feathery inspiration. I hope he arrives safely at his new home!
