Manchester Mega Mela 2012

I brought my ‘Cut and Create Bird Mobiles’ down to the Arts and Crafts tent at the Manchester Mega Mela festival on Platt Fields Park. Inviting families and kids to come and make their own! The Saturday poured with rain but by the Sunday was beautiful and sunny, thanks to Vicky who came down and coloured in with us.

Urban Fairytales – Z Arts

I was involved with Z-Arts Urban Fairytale Project with Year 5 Webster Primary School.
Working alongside Ellie and Karin from the MA Creative Writing Course at MMU we created a series of workshops to inspire the children into writing their own Urban Fairytales.  As lead artist I worked with the children in developing their stories visually, creating characters, going on sketch walks around Hulme to create backgrounds for their stories, making book covers and the final design of the book.
I also made some treehouse’s displays that was a part of the Manchester Childrens Book Festival


Many thanks to everyone involved, special thanks to Vicky and Jilly from Z-Arts.
