Off to Segedunam again to meet up with the Giraffes another Y4 class from Denbigh Primary School, Wallsend.
I am armed with my concept for the Shrine (photo) and my mock-up mobile showing how lightweight the pieces will be and examples of mark making embossed into metal foil to show how we can make the work. (photo)
In Art residencies I like to share my artist’s journey so the participants can join me on the journey and contribute to the process. Everyone is going to look and draw Roman patterns and lettering and find the names of real people involved in making or living beside the Wall. These are found at Segedunum in the museum and round the sight of the fort. We made little sketchbooks and then used these to record names, words and patterns. Then used these and made embossed marks on the metal foil.
