Normally I blog at least once a week, but I hope you will forgive me for the longer than normal gap….it has just been so lovely to read your comments after the launch of my new site – all your words have been truly received. I have been touched by the feedback (both on and offline) and encouraged by how many of you have said that the new site is a great resource to you – that is so what I want it to be! Thank you all.
Before I announce the winners of the giveaway (drum roll….!), I just want to show you some pictures of the community mosaics that children and parents of the Wandsworth Early Years Service are making with the help of yours truly.
When this project was hatched, I felt glee at the prospect of helping to create giant mosaic ladybirds, snails and bees. Whilst it is seriously hard physical work prepping a project like this (picture me covered in cement dust from cutting the insects, and with bits of tile in…ehm!…the folds of my clothes) this kind of project is just bound to bring out the inner child.
The utter concentration and enthusiasm of the parents and children at our first making session was just wonderful (I had to usher them out for a tea break!). We have two more sessions to finish our bugs and butterflies before they are all installed in the centre garden. I will post some tips on doing this kind of project soon…
Each entrants name was written on a piece of paper and folded (spot the UV lamp on the left – pressie from my beloved last Christmas, to keep the happy hormones flowing during the dark winter!). There were exactly 100 entrants, and two beautiful assistants to pull the names out of the hat!
And the winners are….for the Experimental Art E-Course:
And for the mosaic heart brooch…
Congratulations to you both! Please do get in touch to arrange receiving your prizes.
I will be back in a couple of days with details of a wonderful exhibiting/community mosaic opportunity for you!
