I am starting a new project as Artist in Residence at Prenton High School for Girls which will involve producing a large installation created with the community in the lead up to the centenary of the end of World War 1. I will be trying out the workshop in The launch of the Wilfred Owen Commemoration on 17th March in the Pyramids Shopping Centre in Birkenhead between 2-4pm.

Today I showed the second group more difficult techniques. Some struggled a little but with a little practice the results ended up being very good. I can't wait to see what they do next.

Today I started working with another y10 class on a project based on my coral colony. I showed them three simple techniques that they have tried out and with many developed furher. They got more done than I expected and are ready to move onto the the more advanced paper manipulating techniques next time.

The students are doing so well with this project. I spoke to them today about refining their skills and making the most of what they do well. The results are already very impressive and they had less than two hours to get this far. I can't wait to see the finished work!

For the month of March I will be showing a recycled paper woodland installation in the window of the Bluecoat Display Centre. Alongside this I will be running an altered book workshop at Cass Arts, Liverpool based on work in the installation.

Participants are invited to bring an old paperback book to recycle if they wish but books will be provided and available to use.

This workshop is limited to 10 participants so booking is essential.
