The Year 8’s were studying coastal erosion through an exploration of artistic processes. Students explored markmaking using lino-cutting, monoprinting with seaweed, dip-dye using indigo and indian block printing. I’d hoped that we would get onto doing some etching, but time did not permit. I worked with lots of SEND children in this year group. There were challenges but I think this might have been the most rewarding group to work with. It was a bit risky to trust the class with lino-cutting tools, but they were deeply engaged in the activity. Students were focused on the physicality of print and it was a joy to facilitate this learning.
