The Tetley Workshop – Tile Explorations

Commissioned Work, Community, The Tetley, Workshops

The Tetley Programme

Today has been by far the busiest workshop I have ever delivered! It even appeared to have broken Tetley records, as we logged over 342 visitors during the four hours we were active.
The tile embossing seemed to be a hit with the children, and the sharpie pens were great for colouring over the aluminium foil (something that was discovered by one of the visitors!). Also the paper weaving was fun, the colours matching sunrises, trees and oceans, some even embellished by adding their own designs on top. We ran out of tiles as we were so busy, so we had improvise and found card worked just as well. Some of the parents I spoke with liked the ideas we were using and I explained how they can do the activities at home with their children, and how they can make their own versions.

Below is some photographs I managed to take during the workshop (my usual document taker was unavailable).
