Bedminster Down School Residency

During my time as Artist in Residence at Bedminster Down Secondary school in 2013 I ran a series of drawing and bookmaking sessions. I asked the students to imagine their journey to school and ‘map’ this journey as a continuous line. This prompted much discussion about their individual journeys and their surrounding areas and also a collaborative drawing or ‘map’ of their journeys. The students then made their drawings into simple concertina books with additional illustrations, designs and text. The books then went on permanent display in a cabinet within the Art & Design department at BDS school, which was a lovely way in which to summarise and exhibit the fab work made by the students during the workshops.
