As part of the Treasure Trail ‘p@ints’ hosted some exciting ‘PRINTMAKING’ demonstrations led by Anne Seller. The public were encouraged to visit us to find a clue for the next part of the trail. The clues here were hidden in a large set of artist made scales. Visitors had the opportunity to use a portable press to make some small colourful prints to take home. Some of the plates used to make the prints are on show and will be assembled together to make a big picture. Thank you Anne for all your hard work.
Many thanks to Cheryl Papasian ‘White Shed artist’ who also had her studio open and helped to make the event a great success.
Thanks also to Lucy Gradidge for doing a great job of organising event.
Interactive Woodland Balance
Can you help get the balance right?
Visitors and artists at the Perrywood Arts Event were invited to walk around the Art Trail and enjoy the diverse selection of workshops, demonstrations, music, performance and exhibits.
If on their journey they saw something natural they wanted to add to the scales they placed it gently in one side or the other. See what happened! Some of the items added were leaves, fir cones, pieces of bark and feathers.
It was their choice to tip the balance one way or the other. Some visitors wished to try and get the balance right in which case they added something to both sides.
What happened on the Day?
At the end of the day the items added were left in the scales and put on show in p@ints, Studio 8, 35-37 Tontine Street, Folkestone, Kent.
The winner of the £100 prize for the best Artist Made Christmas Tree is ‘ The Lookers Tree’ made by children and adults led by Annie Begley at the Kent Wildlife Trust in New Romney.
