LCAD prospectus 08/09

5 Sep

A photo of my degree show work is in the Leeds College of Art & Design 08/09 prospectus. Alongside work that had been made at previous workshops, I exhibited an interactive projection of this Re-Toyed Trash blog and had a workshop bench and materials for visitors to make their own toys with. In the prospectus image my coursemate Bav Shah is making a toy at the workshop bench during his invigilation of our Art & Design degree show.

Knottingley workshops

18 Jul

During June and July I visited the Crafty Folk in Knottingley to run a series of workshops with the lovely ladies there.  The Crafty Folk make sellable crafty objects to sell at fetes and fairs and give the profits to local charities.  I think some of these amazing furry toys might be given to loved ones though.

Photos from the Easter Sunday workshop

6 Apr

The recent workshops on Easter Saturday at theartmarket included a Re-Toyed Trash Easter special and Toby Juliff’s collaborative painting. We saw some finger puppets being made, some toothy bunnies, a rather special fish and kids enjoying getting messy with paint. We had fun and we hope everyone enjoyed their Easter weekend too.

Workshop at Artgos

5 Jan

Nicolar Bell and I held a workshop for the last day of Artgos on Saturday 15th December at theartmarket.

Artgos was a collaboration between Artsparkle and theartmarket and sold work by big name artists alongside fresh talent working with multiples.

With templates, visitors could make their own soft multiples, or choose to customise our patterns to make something a bit different. We used recycled and donated fabrics in our workshop.
