Before the 2nd session at a school in Burnely where I was making a banner each with key stage 1 and 2, i had a phone call from Leeds City Museum to meet with their curator for another potential education project! After a meeting at the museum subject to contracts and an exciting CPD day at the V&A I will be working with the new costume exhibition at Leeds City Museum and inspiring a group of secondary school students to create headwear for the film costumes, very exciting.
Working with the primary children is liberating, terrifying, humbling, exhilarating and quite hard work, I have learnt a lot. Not least that everything needs to be planned and that children at that age don't actually want options that are too great, I hope that some of it continues as it has been a revelation.
