Bunting - screen print

And another School Print Day, but this time it's bunting. 

Working with year 6 children from All Saints Inter Church Acadamy in March  (the town not the month) and organised by the wonderful youth arts organisation 20Twenty Productions.  

What a nice way to end the school term and a very nice gift to leave for the school as the young people move up to secondary school.

School Banners

 I've been so busy having fun with summer workshops this year that I haven't had a chance to blog about it all.  We've been making art all over East Anglia! So, I'm going to try to do some catching up, and what better place to start than with the banners done with Rackham School in Witchford.

Each banner was printed by a class and was based on a concept from the school ethos.  It was potentially quite challenging because the themes were not directly visual:  'courage, wisdom, peace and love'.  The children were unphased and came up with all sorts of very clever ways to depict these themes as you can see below.

I usually hang the banners up on a sunny day to spray them with fire retardant - and that seemed like a good opportunity to take some photographs.
