I have recently been watching a couple of Grayson Perry's Art Club series on All4.
when he mentioned Memory Jugs and my ears pricked up as I didn't know what they were.
I googled it and found a wonderland of jugs and other utensils that had been covered in all sorts of bits and pieces.
I am so excited by this (it doesn't take much, lol) because I have several drawers full of stuff that I could use here, collected for my patchwork but likely will never be used.
Above are a couple of examples.
I could do with the charity shops being open now to obtain some interesting vessels to cover.
You can use grout or make home made dough.
If you make your own dough you can even colour it before you start.
I've been out and got the salt and a couple of food colours and probably after Christmas I shall give this a go.
