Another Throwback Thursday!

During the half term break I had the privilege of working with a great bunch of kids in a series of workshops.

Entitled ‘Come Yew In’ , they were to celebrate the history of strangers to Norwich with stories of visitors to the city over the centuries, whilst learning new skills and most importantly having fun through creativity.

Some of the artwork produced will play a part in a series of free performances in Norwich in a show produced by The Common Lot, see the website below for more details.

Get ready for a throwback thursday!

It was a great privilege to work with the children from Freethorpe School on a commission for the school itself.

Pupils from nursery through to year 6 worked together to create the image, I simply put it all together.

This was very much a mixed media project using gouache, watercolour/ poster paints, tissue paper and cotton buds etc! The fingerprints of the little ones were a great asset for the roof tiles!

All the children did a marvellous job, the headmistress Rachel Quick and Alex Gotte were quite overwhelmed on their leaving presentation day and the children were beaming with pride.

 

The latest exhibition…

Although I’ve been busy moving house and my studio is currently the lounge!

I did manage to produce work for the latest  exhibition at the Halesworth Gallery.

It’s called 100 Square Feet. Where 100 artists complete 1 wooden panel and 101 small artworks.

These small works are then mixed with the other artists.  They are then boxed into 100’s with each artist recieving one.

The art in the 101st box is on display in the gallery. This will be raffled with the proceeds going to Sightsavers, a worth while charitable cause.

The panels are also on display and for sale in the gallery.

The exhibition will run from the 20th of August until the 7th of September. With the gallery being open weekdays & Saturdays 11am – 5pm and Sunday’s 2pm-4pm.

Admission is free, so please do check it out if you’re in the area.
