Over at Scout, Jill & Gill were screenprinting totes while neighbours Tamp & Stitch provided medieval calligraphy demonstrations with spiced wine. At Cow’s Lane Designer Studio, milliner John Shevlin spoke about his designs while Indigo & Cloth put on a poster exhibition. And to finish off a delightful and inspiring evening on an otherwise sombre day in the city thanks to the US presidential result, there were live drawing sessions with artist Joe Rooney at the Jam Art Factory.
