In January 2016 I had the great pleasure to work with the incomparable Young People's Poet Laureate of Wales, Sophie McKeand, on a 3 week school residency in schools across Denbighshire in North Wales. Inspired by the ancient poet bard, Taliesin and the story of Ceridwen, the students from year 3 created poetry with Sophie from which we then created imagery and stencils for screen printing onto textiles. These were then used to create cauldrons with 'flaming' words and poetry erupting from them. The couldrons as well as the screen-printed poems were exhibited in both Prestatyn and Wrexham Libraries. It was wonderful to work with Sophie and learn about her creative process and to combine words and imagery to collaborate with fantastic young artists on these pieces!
