2010 – patterns/crafts

Indian children have a particular gift for colour and pattern. At first it was quite hard to get them to let their imaginations run riot, the Indian educational system relies heavily on the method of copy by example, but i wanted them to use their own ideas. Here are patterns used to create abstract designs which were then folded to create decorations. Again i try to show them things that they can do after i am gone, so am careful to only use materials the school can provide for them and that cost very little.
