Go for a ramble through your home. Explore and rediscover your "stuff". Choose a collection of objects.Take a funky photo of your collection and send it to ANW.
Upcycle something from your collection. You could add a few stitches, cut out pieces, use a texta to colour in etc. I found scrap pieces of fabric and created soft sculptural suffolk puffs. Don’t forget to send a photo to ANW of your creation!
upcycle: to reuse (discarded objects or material) in such a way as to create a product of higher quality or value than the original.
Continue working with your collection. Combine your found and upcycled objects and create an artwork.
Take a photo and send it to email@example.com. All images will be uploaded on to the Arts North West Creative Community Pages as an online exhibition.
Take a photo of something that epitomises your place.
It needs to be a detail – it could be a photo of your armchair? Or a flower in your garden? The bricks of your house? Or your coffee plunger?
Write a haiku to describe what you like about your place
The rules for writing a haiku: Only three lines, totaling 17 syllables throughout, The first line is only 5 syllables, The second line is 7 syllables, The third line is 5 syllables like the first, Punctuation and capitalization rules are up to the poet, and need not follow rigid rules used in structuring sentences. Haiku does not have to rhyme, in fact many times it does not rhyme at all. Some haiku can include the repetition of words or sounds.
