Well today we’re carrying on with our artistic experiments. Everyone is getting a go to improve their illustration skills with Nicholas. We’ll be creating more decal transfers for the ceramic art and getting our fingers dirty in some wet clay too.
Aside from that today we thought it would be nice for the participants to have a go at some Craftivism!
Much along the lines of ‘PostSecret‘, a few participants anonymously added a message about their thoughts on mental health/positive thinking/their own lives and positioned it somewhere around the custard factory area of Digbeth.
It’s a liberating feeling being able to speak to someone about your feelings. Maybe we’ll get some interesting responses…
Well, we had a great first day. A large attendance of young people and a genuine buzz of excitement from Craftspace staff, artist, volunteers and participants.
Today was a day full of experimentation, working with clay, ceramic, carbon transfers, decals and a variety of illustration and sewing techniques.
