Temporary Showcase! Kid's Patchwork!
Hello from Fish and Chips HQ!
Today we changed our rotating showcase space to present the results of our recent workshops for kid's in cooperation with European youth organisation, JEF . Stage one of our workshops included a special theme promoting AIDS awareness and highlighting the work of organisation, Designers Against AIDS.
During these workshops the children were given the opportunity to create their own individual square that they could then contribute to a special patchwork that we were constructing to then hand over to DAA. Mixed in with the kid's patches were also contributions from some of our hosting designers Scott Ramsay Kyle and Pebelle and the exhibition curators, Emma Bell and Polona Dolzan.For the upcoming week the patchwork will be displayed as part of 'Fish and Chips, Twice Please?! alongside some illustrations and designs created by the kid's during the workshops. Following it's showcase in the gallery we will be shipping the piece off to the DAA head office in Belgium.
We hope that you take the chance to come and check out the patchwork and the outcome of the fun and exciting workshops here at 'Fish and Chips, Twice Please?!'
