For the second year running I was asked to run a talk to the MA Art Education students at my university on mailart in education. For me this is a hugely exciting lecture that I do as a favour to the art education lecturers, who I get on very well with.
This years cohort were a lovely bunch of girls who were really interested to hear about how mailart changed me from physics teacher to artist, and from artist to postcard swap coordinator. In short mailart has changed my life and I’m not afraid to admit it!
After talking at length about my REAL wall, mailart 365 and schoolswaps, the students were let loose to create their own mailart and they took to it like fish to water. In about an hour we had at least 2 pieces each ready to be let loose into the world.
All in a days work at my REAL wall 🙂
Love the knitted banner!! Who made that??
That was done by the wonderful OKADASCAT. Sadly, I no longer see her in the post or on the networks, as she was one of mine and Elena’s favourite mailartists and there’s never been any other knitters to replace her 🙁
