Covid changed all of our plans.
I had been preparing my plant based ink experiments for an exhibition that suddenly disappeared. Adapting to new circumstances I take the ideas of the exhibition into the classroom. After a covid test. And after making individual bottles of ink for each student so that they can maintain social distance.
The preparation is laborious but I am happy that the children get the chance to play a little with the inks and modifiers. One of the classes takes place via Zoom, the materials having been sent a week earlier to quarantine in the school. This is a lot of work for the teachers who are present. I remain an entity on a screen attempting to guide the activity.
