Fine cell work

I have just been watching a video about "Fine Cell Work".
This organisation is teaching men and women in prison in England to sew, embroider, make patchworks. They produce cushions and throws sold to the public, admittedly they are not cheap but very good quality, and the designs are beautiful.
The video is very interesting, so if you have a few minutes, go and have a look.

They have made things for Dover Castle in a medieval inspiration and will have a piece at the V &A museum in a coming exhibition.
