Being freelance means my weeks vary – a lot! One week I might been working from home, which is good but often means that I get distracted by piles of washing, piles of paper, in fact piles of piles dotted all over the house! I have to be disciplined and try and sit in my room and get on with whatever work needs to be done. This week I got to go out!!! I was asked to be part of a lovely project trying to link local schools. It involved getting three schools to send a class of seven and eight year old children to meet at an amazing Asian fabric and clothes shop. The idea was to mix the schools up and have three groups of children doing three different one hour art activities, and make new friends. I was asked to take my group into the shop so that they could have a look at the beautiful colours and patterns on the clothes. The children were then encouraged to try and draw the patterns and colours that they had seen.
