At school we have to learn Workplace Safety but instead of watching boring videos we get to do stuff.
We have learnt how to use equipment safely in the workshop by making a pencil box. It involved hammering and glueing. I finished building mine today by adding a lovely wooden leaf that I cut with a scroll saw (paint to follow). I really need a workshop/shed.
We also completed our screen printing task. My work apron has some lovely pink ink on a black background. Now I get to turn this pristine apron into a working piece of clothing and cover it with whatever substances we use all year in our art. What a joy and a luxury to be studying art and doing art every day.
