Event Description

THEME: Compost/ Soil
Over the course of the week young people learn new skills in traditional crafts within professional artist’s studios in East London. Together they will explore the values of their environment, using letterpress printmaking, ceramics and drawing at Standpoint Studios and it's local Great Outdoors. The project is in collaboration with Phytology medicinal garden in Bethnal Green.
Participants will engage with the process of making by experimenting with the nature of the material to develop new skills within a professional environment. All craft activities will be delivered by experienced artist educators.
Monday: Field trip to Phytology garden where the group will learn more about composting and compost toilets, one of the projects run on-site by artist and community gardener Hari Byles. Together they will open a discussion and explore different compost systems on site. 
Tues-Fri: At Standpoint Studios young people will work in different crafts such as ceramics, letterpress printmaking and textile to develop a project based on their gained knowledge on composting. 
Fri afternoon: Final show of all the artwork by the participants to families, friends and the public.
