Fabric painting class for children

Posted on

Every Saturday (until next week as we finish for the year) I teach Art on the Saturday school programme for Newham based 8-12 year olds at Rosetta Art Centre.

We’ve had a fantastically rich six months, covering ceramics, drawing, painting techniques, mixed media, ceramics and last Saturday had splendid results; we worked as a team and painted large-scale Aboriginal inspired animals onto a banner.

I think it looks fantastic…

Here is the result of  four print and embroidery workshops with ‘the knit and chat’ group at Splash Arts. The theme running through each of the sessions was WW2, women’s role during the war and influencing female fashion from the 30’s to the 50’s.

In the class we explored screen-printing, mono-printing, appliqué and hand-embroidery and participants created individual samples each week on our theme…it was great fun!
