Mark Making

Brushes, stamps and rollers at the ready – mark making session in progress

To reward ourselves for Interlace’s recent successes we recently treated ourselves to some creative time in the form of a mark making session – it was so much fun! The plan is to have more creative days like this again very soon.

These mark makings have now been put onto silk screens for printing on textile and will form the basis of a new collection which will be launched at Craftspace’s Made in the Middle exhibition later this year.


Urban Growth community project

This month we have started an exciting project working with 8-13 year olds in Leicester city centre. We have been funded by the Joyce Carr Doughty Trust to work with the Contact Project, a charity focussing on providing young people with creative learning and support.

Over six weeks, we are working with a group of young people to research, design and create an original collaborative art work which will be displayed in Makers’ Yard.

This week’s session involved a photo walk between the Contact Project and Makers’ Yard, exploring urban details which we will use in our design development.


We also turned out the first test pieces of concrete made last week, and worked on our design ideas using the photographs taken.
