Clients Stories over Time

 

This is A's story:

   At a time of significant change in my life: children leaving home, moving house, death of my mum, becoming a grandma and most recently retirement, Transforming Threads has given me the opportunity of exploring who I am: Where is MY sparkle? What is MY passion? What do I like? What do I want to do? How can I express myself creatively?  All of my pieces of work explore these questions apart from the last one, which is a reflection on my mom's life and who she was. The sessions have given me space to concentrate on finding my own voice and to move forward into this new phase of my life with more clarity, excitement and confidence.  Ana provides amazing knowledge, support and guidance to explore these questions through her wonderful range of materials in a beautiful, caring environment.    Interesting note: A is not a keen sewer; her pieces, with the exception of one, were made using fabric glue, staples and pins.

This is B's story:

Having had a very interesting Taster Day with Ana, meeting very interesting people and in beautiful surroundings, my mind was opened up to the concept of touch and feel and colour, perceived from an altogether different direction. My first pieces very much brought to the fore the constraints of duty, custom, tradition and perceived criticism. 

As we moved through our workshops I found an opening that enabled me to get more in touch with the threads of my life that are so important to my inner wellbeing and calmness.

Some of my pieces i really love and others not so much. As in life not everything that makes us whole is beautiful but we can make the very best of what have.

I have gained a great deal from the continuing process of getting in touch with myself and having time to develop a better understanding of everything around us.
