This has been my last week working on the Summer Art sessions. I've been kept busy at The Priory in Birkenhead. I have been running a three day project working on the same theme as the previous weeks but being able to spend the time on a more skilled project. Sewing maps, decorating treasure chests and making coins.

This week I'm working in an empty shop in Birkenhead Shopping Centre opposite Burtons. I'm running a drop in family workshop for all ages with the theme 'Making your mark'. I've chosen to use this theme to look at the Wirrals past and I have been researching our Viking past. We will be printmaking using cardboard collagraphs that the visitors will make in the shape and style of viking coins.We will also be making viking style treasure maps.
As my project other artists will be working in the space on their projects based on 'Making your Mark'.
