September – December 2019
The Magnificent Art Factory

The Magnificent Art Factory was the first collaboration between Toynbee Hall Wellbeing Centre and Christ Church Primary School, working with artists Ben Connors, a visual artist and Shepherd Manyika, a mixed media artist.
Together they found shared values and interests and decided what characteristics our characters might have. First using illustration, then in clay, they learnt how to move between 2D and 3D artworks and how you can create stories through sculpture. We were inspired by pagodas, totems and other stackable structures! The artworks were exhibited to friends and family at Christ Church Primary School.
