The Oxford Children's Guild of St Clare: Progress


The Oxford Children's Guild is now well into its second year, and a great deal of work has been accomplished. Earlier posts described the making of smocked bonnets and sleeping bags: here are further pictures of the completed work.

 Moving on from these projects, the girls have begun some dressmaking, taught by expert dressmaker Clare Auty.

Work on dressmaking, whitework and (for the younger children) felt-making, continues. More pictures will be forthcoming when the new term is well under way!
