Big plans for My Sisters’ Kitchen

The Monday night My Sisters' Kitchen (MSK) program has become a wonderful place for exchange of all sorts of tactile arts and crafts practices. Over the past few months we've welcomed many friends sharing their crafts. We've learnt how to weave rag rugs, knit with material scraps, bead and sew all sorts of outfits - baby clothes, dresses, skirts, shirts, aprons and even a ball gown have been started. The children have been busy making toys from recycled materials.
