Tiny Fantasies

IMG_4355IMG_4347 Still the greatest opportunity in my working life to make a big, creative, joyful mess, is the Orleans House Gallery Holiday Activities.

Last week, responding to the tiny pictures in the Polemically Small exhibition, I worked with 4 - 10 year olds to create tiny books full of even tinier characters, and folded away into C7 envelopes.

After using wax resist and watercolours to create exotic backdrops, we explored different ways to create funny, mysterious, believable and magical creatures. These are a few of my favourites. IMG_4357
