HALLOWEEN AT BLAZE
I did a workshop for BLAZE festival for Halloween. BLAZE organised artists to deliver a range of arts and crafts workshops at Accrington library. Community Arts by ZK delivered an arts and crafts workshops to children, young people and parents to participate in.
The workshop allowed children and parents to make paper pumpkins as decorations for Halloween. The concept of the paper pumpkins was for them to be multifunctional in their use. In Halloween you can use the paper pumpkins as decorations and when Halloween is over the paper pumpkins would turn in to small note books and scrap books; therefore being sustainable.
The workshop enabled children and parents to work with artist Zaneb Khatun, who showed children how to make paper pumpkins and then let them do their own design, giving them independence and the ability to take control and owership over their own designs and at the same time, having fun and interacting with the group.
