Tools like palette knives, whittling knives, lino carving tools, drills and saws can be dangerous if used incorrectly. But they also give a great sense of agency to children who, through their creative projects, are empowered to make a mark in and on their world.Read More
/ziːn/ ZEEN: writing our experiences...
Every now and then we will share some of our experiences in collaboration with our other Kindling Creatives, big and small, young and not-so-young.
Visit our Zine from time to time and share your thoughts with us too - our story sharing may help us to build a bigger picture of our creative experiences...together.
In October 2017, we put our building hats on and moved into the Art Gallery space, albeit temporarily!
We were invited to run some children's workshop in conjunction with the My Story My Home exhibition, designed and produced by World Press Photo Perth.
We learnt a good deal about engagement.
We learnt something about play.
We thought about our ways of working!
We had a lot of 'stuff'! But in terms of play and making, 'stuff' becomes something else. It is given life and meaning by those who manipulate it to create a new use for it.
And boy, can Perth kids play! It was such a fun weekend! Thank you AGWA and World Press Photo Perth for including us in this amazing activity!
