This month I have been working with Raynham Primary School as a workshop assistant with Cathy Wade, an artist who specialises in art sustainability. This has been a very exciting experience for me, working with children and being a part of teaching them how to improve their local area and school to make it more sustainable and environmentally friendly through art.
I have also been working on bin designs inspired by the workshop I did in April, at The Living Room Library, and the applique cushions that the participants made. The designs were also influenced by William Morris and African textiles, and I made sure to make the colours bright and bold to bring attention to the bins in Fore Street Edmonton, to encourage people to use the bins. Below are two designs out of 23 that I have made.
