Today was the first day of "A Touch of Glass.." workshop.
KAE Films was there to document this first day with the children and Nathalie.
The film prepared last month on the Margaret Rope exhibition was shown to the children to engage them into the visual context of the workshop.
Nathalie then asked the children to design their own images of birds as possible artworks for the window.
(Taken from Nathalie's blog)...
"...I asked the children to work to a scale that will be proportional to the full size cartoon I had brought on site and showed to them. All glass pieces I had cut for them were to a size they were invited to keep as their reference once they had selected the piece of glass..."
The young artists soon got stuck into the techniques behind designing and then making their ideas a piece of art on glass, with the expert help of Nathalie of course.
