Watermarks - Wolverton Mill Workshops

Watermarks Project - To work with groups over the period of two days at Slated Row School, The Radcliffe School and a community drop in session on site. In all 95 participants took part in the workshops.

The aim of the sessions was to create low relief tiles on the theme of water patterns. The intention is that the pieces produced during the session will be used to create cast iron paving panels to be included in the proposed art work for Wolverton Mill Play Area.
Once our project is completed we will return the works to the school along with a permanent plaster replica of the paving panels.

Castleford, Lock Lane

Occasionally a project can take some time to come to fruition. Back in 2006 I was asked to work with groups of children living in the Lock Lane area of Castleford, to design decorative railing panels for their recreation ground. What with one thing and another the project has lain dormant till now. I have been asked to re-visit and re-cost the designs so an application can be made for funding.

A little research.
Pipe cleaner bugs and butterflies.
Making a negative impression.
The panels could look like this....
