Wishing Fish Project

I’m looking forward to being involved in World Fish migration day. The Wishing Fish is part of an international initiative celebrating migratory fish and teaching people why its so important to take care of our rivers. More information can be found at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XHdEkfucwi4&sns=tw This week, I will be working with first year BA design students at Worcester University to help them on their brief ‘Wishing Fish’. Students will create ideas for primary school worksheets on making fish on sticks for a carnival procession. Worksheets will also be made for Toddlers to make a fish at home, created mainly from every day waste materials found from around the home.

World War 1 Bunting Workshop at Witton Middle School, Droitwich

Wychavon Council commissioned me to work with fifty Year 4 and 5’s  to create bunting using fabric paints and stencils on the theme of World War 1.  It will be a 100 years since the Battle of the Somme and Droitwich will be celebrating this anniversary.  I have been very impressed by the community spirit in Droitwich, where loads of different groups and individuals are decorating their own bunting which will all be sewn together to hang in Droitwich town centre at the end of this month.

Here are some of the fantastic examples of bunting created by the students at Witton School.



Ghanaian coffin project at the Coffin Works

I am very excited to be working on a celebration of life and death project, at the Coffin Works in Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter.  It will be a five week project working with women from all cultures and faiths, commencing in May.  We will be creating miniature coffins taking inspiration from the fabulous Ghanaian coffins, which will be exhibited at the venue from July to September 2015.
