I went on these in the tate modern, with big art project. Fantastic way for us to realise art can be anything!
WOW. I love everything about this!
On Saturday i lead a Knitting workshop at the Somewhere to_ Project Triangle event! i was very nervous leading up to the event but it was very exciting getting everything ready in the morning. I created an installation in the centre of the knitting circle, which looked like an explosion of texture and colour with my large knitting needles in the middle of the piece with all the other needles and wools.
This was my first experience of leading a workshop, so i didn’t know what to expect! At one point it got really busy and it proved popular all day! Time flew and there were lots of very enthusiastic people sat around knitting, it was great to see people engaging and learning a new skill! it was a very enjoyable day, and i came away feeling very pleased with what i had achieved! I was approached regarding other workshops and projects which is fantastic!

For the Stakeholders event, me joanna paul and tim, a graphic designer worked on creating matchboxes to give out in the goody bags. My inspiration was from a hand drawn illustrative matchbox. I showed Tim my drawings of all the igniters which then inspired the design of the sleeves. This was the first colour scheme, but i suggested to change it as i didn’t think of green and yellow as the main Ignite or Blaze colours, it also was a bit too much colour and the Ignite didn’t stand out from the background.
This was the ammended colour way which i think looked fantastic and made the Ignite logo stand out.
The insides of the matchboxes.
The final goody bags, with BLAZE stamps. i was really pleased and proud of the work i’ve done on these products.
Tonight was the launch of BLAZE’s summer programme of work, the event held at the Pavillion showcased all the strands of BLAZE. It was a colourful and energetic arrival for the guests with some live graffiti art, free running on an amazing structure, dj’ing. It was interesting to see the artists working on the live graffiti pieces as they referred to a sketchbook for the images, they worked really quickly and boldy and i loved their distinct styles. i am really interested in having a go as i think it could improve my illustrations which i am eager to do!
I love the stylistic images of faces and figures! feel very inspired to draw and develop my own style more! Live art is a must for BLAZE festival, its great to see the blank canvas before the final outcome, and to see the process.
The amazing Boom Bike Band showed guests down the path with a moving performance, which was really engaging!
There was a mock up of the three-dimensional shards that are going to be placed around the festival site, it was really large and bright creating a great impact on the space, i can just imagine them around the site, and lit up at night will look esquisite!
This is an image from graduate fashion, theres something about it that i really love! the angular wooden shapes hanging in the bold neon spray, i think the contrast in materials works well too!
