After working with the volunteers of Mustard Tree through clay workshops, we got together with everyone to take photography of them holding their objects. Through dictionary definitions we illustrate the ideas behind the project.

Interfaith Childhoods

Interfaith Childhoods is a transnational research project that aims to promote acceptance and community through creativity in primary schools across Sydney, Melbourne, Manchester and London. Together we created artwork that illustrates emotions and actions that can help make the world a better place. The project will continue in 2019 and I am looking forward to working alongside the team again. To find out more please visit https://www.interfaithchildhoods.com/

Tittymama Army

The Tittymama Army is an army of clay women who have come together to stand against gender stereotyping and unrealistic feminine ideals. The workshops create a safe space and a support network where everyone is free to talk (or not), to laugh ( which often happens), and to create.

creative bookmaking

This book was created by a year 5 pupil of Marsden Primary School. Inspired by the folk tale of the Green man and Jack Frost, the children were shown how to create their own story. I helped equip the children with all the necessary elements to create a successful book cover and tips on how to illustrate the story.

Paper hangings we made together to create a Patience Tree. We painted the things we wanted to pass with winter and make room for happy things to come through with Spring. The rain and the wind will wash these things and feelings away in time.

An illustration from the Time Tiles project. Year 6 tackled their own illustration project where they were given a limited colour pallet and assigned a season. The children thought about their favourite activity to do outside in their given season that helps to keep a healthy mind. They illustrated their activity to create a mosaic of ideas to help the other children realise all of the activities you can do all year round.

Year 3 and 4 created 3D self portraits out of plasticine. These self portraits were of themselves or objects from their favourite places outside in nature.

The final year of Interfaith Childhoods.

This year sees the three years of workshops draw to a close for the Interfaith Childhoods research project. I have been involved for the last two years working with children in Primary schools in Manchester. Other research workshops were held in London, Melbourne, Sydney, Adelaide and Canberra headed by Professor Anna Hickey-Moody of RMIT University.

This year I worked with Claremont Primary School with 5-6 year olds and with Alma Park with 10-11 year olds. We spoke about safe spaces, special places and things and questioned what really matters to uncover connections across ethnically diverse communities through art. Family and friends, places of worship, the park, libraries, languages and names were all listed as things that were important to us and helped form our own personal identity. Together we created personal animations which shown the children’s drawings being created and the children wrote a script about their image and we lay this over the movie giving a full story. We finished by speaking about refuge and what makes a refuge. The children drew the things that the refuge would need to include for them and others in order to feel safe and part of a community. We then hung these drawings on the refuge tents to create an inclusive and welcoming community for all.
