One of the last things I did before lockdown commenced was a talk and memory box workshop with years 5 and 6 at Radnor Road Primary School.
They had carried out a mass litter pick with Cardiff Rivers Group and then spent the day with me turning all their rubbish into huge pieces of art. Each class had a huge box and the children did an amazing job of creating dividers for all their objects and sticking their objects in.
There were still spaces in the boxes for more rubbish to be collected and added to the box throughout the remaining term - a project to be continued when they go back to school. I can't wait to see them completed!
The school also asked me to give a talk to the pupils about plastic pollution, the environment and what we can do to help the planet.
If you're looking for workshops with schools, please get in touch. I'd love to hear your ideas.
I’m an artist who creates beautiful memory boxes and intricate ink drawings to help you connect with the people and places you love.
