Mothers of Africa Quilt Project

8 Jun

You may recall that earlier this year Cardiff School of Art and design sent details of a project that they were running to support the medical Charity Mothers of Africa. Last year Maggie Cullinane, a members of staff from the Art School coordinated the making of a quilt to raise funds for the charity and this year, she has been into some Cardiff primary schools to work with the children to produce some amazing wall hangings.

Year 2 and 6 children from Rumney primary school have produced a colourful one
