The children were given a template that I had cut out and prepared. We looked at the drawings at that we had worked on last week and wediscussd all the rooms or views they could do. Some were drawn to interiors, bedrooms and places whilst others jumped straight into bridges and landscapes. It was entirely their choice. I helped them with scale and a few pointers for other objects to draw. It worked so well. I was completely chuffed to see what they achieved in just an HOUR!!!amazing. The children at Stonehill are so lovely and this session was exactly why I like working with children and giving them the chance to push their own innate creativity forward with help from me. Its a joy to see their work.

- I am a cut paper artist and I live in Arlesey, Bedfordshire. I am originally from Wiltshire, from a very long village called Winterslow, just outside Salisbury. I make my work by drawing into a black piece of paper and then layering colours from behind which I cut into again. This makes very delicate and intricate paper pieces that are inspired by my love of the landscape and the natural world about me.
