sun on the North Pier

In Blackpool again yesterday for Project Object, after a quick cup of tea enjoying the sun on the North Pier, it was straight into design play with the group of apprentices. This week I gave them the challenge of re-imagining their work for surface design:  bins,  tea-towels, aprons, plates, napkins... Anything and everything that has a pattern on.

The group got their heads down and focused on the job, to produce some fantastic results, a cut out design for a paper/ceramic light shade, a number of tea towels, some bags, gift bags, an apron, a cylinder container....

I'm sad it's my last session. It felt like the start of something rather than the finish- the group were really starting to bond and support each other, and individuals design/drawing styles where beginning to reveal themselves. The group went away with another bundle of drawings, paintings and designs and promises that work would continue at home...

Next time we meet will be the 19th of June for the Creative Industries Event, see the Project Object website for details.
