RESIDENTS are being offered a piece of the action as part of a fun arty workshop at Forge Mill Needle Museum.

Painted quilts sessions take place on Tuesday and Wednesday (February 18 and 19) and are inspired by the Needle Mill Lane museum’s new quilt exhibition Connections.

Children and families mix their own paint following a recipe and then get creative by producing their own square to become part of a painted quilt with Redditch connections.

Sarah Burns, a student of fine art from Staffordshire University, is leading the workshops.

People can take part in the activity by dropping in on either of the two days anytime between 11am and 3pm.

The workshops are free but usual admission fees to the museum apply, except on Wednesdays when entry is free to Redditch residents.
