I’ve been busy making a big fish for Shipley Street Arts Festival in Shipley at the end of the month. I’ve been doing workshops in schools as part of the make and he features some bright + beautiful scales along with some funky fabric fins and an ‘xray’ fish ‘bottom’. They were done by yrs 2 + 3 at St Anthony’s RC School, Shipley and yr 6 at Priestthorpe School, Bingley.

lovely scales produced by the children
my favourite ‘scale’ is this one produced by a 10 year old boy at Priestthorpe School. “it’s a burning man but half of him is under water”. It’s just a brilliant piece of art work.
After about 11 hours of working on him yesterday I convinced myself that he was the spitting image of Freddie Mercury…it’s the overbite.
“Freddie” truffles for titbits on the carpet
the ‘xray’ style fabric painted fishes ‘bottom’!
Shipley Street Arts Festival is on from the 26th to the 28th of June. There’s lots to see and do, download a brochure here! http://shipleystreetarts.com/
