This afternoon the second map making workshop took place. This time it was a Drop In session at Martha & Mary’s Cafe on Chillingham Road.
Ready for Action!
I’d selected the section of the map with the cafe in it – with the proviso that a certain primary school was left for the pupils to complete next week – see you next Wednesday Y4 at Chillingham Road 😄.
I made good use of my bargain new ‘Spotty Dotty Shopping Trolley’ to carry over the materials – but I may have to fit wheels to my fold up table- that thing is heavy!
(Perfect for Art Workshop Transportation!)
There were a lot of houses to print on this section – but that’s not surprising as there are about 11,000 people living in Heaton – if they all come to the festival we are going to need a lot of pom-poms- talking of which…
These participants are using the new pom-pom makers, clip together plastic semi-circles that really speed up the process – if you want to make some green Pom-poms for us these kits can easily be found online😉
As with yesterday’s session at Heaton Manor, I asked everyone to note in my ideas book why they like living in Heaton, and also to print a small piece of fabric that will be used as a marker on the day of the Festival (June 27th – don’t forget!)
Thank you to everyone who joined in today – hope the fabric paint washes out of your clothes! I look forward to seeing you again on the 27th.
And a BIG thank you to all at Martha and Mary’s for hosting this afternoon’s workshop!
