STARS 2 is an informal group, for members only, for textile play and experimentation.
The group began by holding daytime meetings on the fourth Friday in the month in a hall near Bury St Edmunds. Currently we meet via Zoom most Friday mornings for sewing and all things textile.
STARS 2 grew out of the idea that STARS members could meet monthly, for several daytime hours, to 'play' with textile related techniques - we embroider, dye fabric with dyes, the snow, bleach with the sun, burn, melt, use many other textiles besides cotton, make fabrics and paper, turn fluffy wools into felt, resist with wax, iron on real flowers, cut and sew and cut again, use sewing machines etc. It's very informal; sometimes a member will offer to show the group a technique they use and everyone has a go, and at other times the group will simply develop their work further, following a group meeting or workshop.
There is an additional contribution for hall hire.
