‘Why is John Lennon Wearing a Skirt?’ By Claire Dowie

My friends Chloe Richardson and Darcey Graham are producing ‘Why is John Lennon Wearing a Skirt?’ as a part of the In-House Season at The Nottingham New Theatre, and I had the pleasure of designing their poster!

My first ever experiment with clay

I work at an arts centre which often holds events for children to engage in artwork and museum artefacts, and this week I helped out some volunteers in a clay workshop designed for children to learn about Vikings. The idea was to create a Viking-style tile or pot, but I went freestyle and had a go at sculpting a portrait onto a tile.

My tile portrait’s got a few imperfections, but I’d love to work with clay again and improve my technique. I also made a small heart ornament which looks great now I’ve painted it. The tile with the plant motif was created by Sarah Cunningham, a colleague and oil painter.
