Collage 343

Last Friday the team took a break from the studio and did a workshop for 2 art classes at Cambridge Rindge and Latin. We decided to use the poetry of Emily Dickinson to be the students' muse. It was a cool experience- the kids were open and inquisitive, and we had a blast watching what they were making individually and collectively.

Coincidentally, in a second hand bookshop, preparing for our school visit, Lucy A met Masako - a visiting Emily Dickinson expert- and brought her along with us! Now back in Japan, Masako is like an honorary member of the team, and we've been keeping our fingers crossed as her country's current tragedy unfolds. -- Adrienne
