CraftSpace @ Creative Careers Festival, mac

In January I was working with Craft Space at mac in Birmingham  for the Creative Careers Festival, and what an insightful few days it was.
Craftspace invite participants to create with rising textile star, Debbie Smyth exploring drawing using thread. Debbie has developed a visually stunning technique to create playful but sophisticated artworks using a networks of threads stretched between plotted pins. Come and experiment with hammer, nails and thread and a whole new approach to drawing.”
I worked with hundreds of  teenagers within the space of a few days to create a threadiffiti wall. Here of some snaps of the few days.....

I learned a lot over those couple of days and came to the conclusion....teenagers ain't that just gotta point 'em in the right direction
