Open spaces like a theatre stage or the outdoors often help prompt inspirational work - and so it proved today in Fermyn Woods, near Brigstock.
An exercise in mark making involving clay balls thrown from some distance; charcoal drawing using a long stick; burning paper, and a collage of natural materials produced some great work.
All done by some more artists-in-the-making- just like those starting on their training for No Fixed Abode next week. These teenagers were from William Knibb Complimentary Education Centre.
The workshop was part of series I was running with my artist colleague Liam Hadjipetrou in association with Fermynwoods Contemporary Art Centre http://www.fermynwoods.co.uk.
The William Knibb teens are too young to take part in No Fixed Abode but we're hoping they can come to a performance and Lisa from The Core has kindly offered us some space for a special art/theatre workshop.
