Hello! It has been a very long time since my last post – I have been busy writing essays towards the completion on my MA. (Not an experience I wish to repeat!) But i am happy to report I am now finished, and back in the creative world! šŸ™‚

This weekend it was the Hayes Carnival in Hillingdon, and I ran an art workshop for young children and their families.

The theme of this years carnival was ‘Stardust’ and the carnival also wanted to convey the topical message of sustainability.

Using bottle tops and other used and discarded plastic items from local businesses, I invited the participants to ‘make their mark on the Earth’ by using the pieces to create a world globe. The bright and colourful globe looked healthy from a distance, but on closer inspection highlighted the litter strewn environment in which we live.
