St Joseph's Catholic Primary School - Sale

Amanda has just finished a two weeks 'artist in residence' project at St Joseph's Catholic Primary School in Sale working with the reception class all the way through to Year 6.

The focus over the project was textiles and print making and where possible linking in with curriculum topics.

The classes produced some amazing pieces - wall hangings, large boxed canvases, banners and beany frogs to name but a few.

Over half term Amanda is finishing the display items (using her new Janome sewing machine !) to display throughout the school.

The children were so enthusiastic and thoroughly enjoyed the change over the last two weeks as did the very supportive staff at St Joseph's.
