Thanks to everyone who joined our workshop at America Hall on 3rd March. With a brilliant selection of old photographs, maps, silk painting, knitting and crochet, there was something for every level of interest and it was really fantastic to see everyone having a go.

UPDATE: we are not scheduling meetings at the moment due to precautions regarding transmission of the coronavirus. If you would like to continue to knit and crochet leaves etc or are interested in working with a small quilting and embroidery group, please let us know so we can send you some patterns! mail@portfoliofive.co.uk

February update

We’re getting ready for spring! Jon Freeman from Clyst Great Trees introduced our project to map new walking and cycling routes across Pinhoe. We also announced a series of Spring workshops with silk painting, knitting, embroidery and quilting for our new Parish Map AND news of tree planting in the new woodland at Monkerton Ridge.

Thank you to everyone who came to the meeting. And special thanks to Cllr Hilary Ackland for assisting with our rights of way enquiries, and to Cllr David Harvey for investigating the fate of the beautiful oaks on Church Hill. We’ll keep you posted…

Dates for your diary >>

Workshops for our new Parish Map project will be announced soon! We’re looking for anyone who is interested in translating moments of local history into a beautiful piece of art for Pinhoe.

If you can knit, sew, embroider, quilt, crochet, map reading – or if you’re interested in learning any of these skills, OUR WORKSHOPS ARE FOR YOU!

Following our funding support from the National Lottery Communities Fund, we are able to get this project started. Thank you to everyone who bought a lottery ticket – you made this project happen!
