There are more recent updates of some dyeing and other activities I’ve been doing over on www.sally-junichi.com available in English and Japanese!
We looked at some black and white images of masks from all over Africa. This student is really getting to grips with using charcoal.
Then we made masks with paper and paint and some other bits and bobs. Which was fun.
At art club (kids aged 4-8) we made mobiles. First we looked at a beautiful one by Pae White and talked about what might make it difficult to make.
Then using all kinds of tricky skills like cutting awkward shapes, tying knots and balanceing, we made our own.
This was a very fun (and a bit surreal) project. I love painting big things.
I’m still not sure about the details of the wrapping paper of this, but it will be available soon in HEP FIVE.
I’ll let you know here as soon as I find out.
So many people came, my friends, co-workers, students and my weaving teacher. I’m glad you came even if I didn’t have a chance to speak to you properly. THANKS!
I am an artist, illustrator, weaver and workshop facilitator currently living and working in London, UK.
