Carnival Parade: Canada

I thought I'd finish the Carnival celebrations with a triumphant display of the Canada element - made entirely by my partner artist, Caroline Jones in collaboration with Hampton Academy and the Orleans House Holiday Workshops. Caroline and I enjoyed a great relationship for the duration of the project and I really enjoyed working with her.IMG_4078 Left, one of three screen printed banners inspired by the art of the indigenous people of the North-West coast.
