Arts and Craft Clubs
Eye For Art - Milton Keynes
Eye For Art is a group which meets regularly, giving members the chance to enhance their skills through various art and craft workshops. They meet the first Thursday of the month.
Eye For Art have a long established history and is a much loved club. Run entirely by volunteers, many of whom have sight loss, the club concentrates on creating fantastic pieces, such as their hand painted silk scarves and beaded bracelet/necklaces, which are sold at various places across Milton Keynes.
They recently worked with Emilie Giles from Open University on a E-textiles project and exhibited their work at MK Gallery in August 2017.
“I’m with people who have the same interest as me. Everyone is very friendly. We are given an amazing variety of things to do by the extremely kind helpers. The results vary, some things turn out better than others, but it doesn’t matter because we enjoy the activity.”
