looking at buildings with 'families learning together'

Postiwyd gan Sian Lile-Pastore ar 19 Mehefin 2012

I met a lovely group this morning from 'families learning together' who took part in one of my looking at buildings sessions.

I sent them out to do some sketches and they came back with these beauties! We then turned the sketches in to 3d models and they were really wonderful!

On saturday, the Craftivists (well, the wonderful Sarah Corbett) came to Oriel 1 to help us make mini protest banners dealing with asylum seekers and refugees.

In the gallery at the moment we have an exhibition called Refugee House which is a recreation of a typical refugee or asylum seeker dwelling in Cardiff.

One of the intentions of the exhibtion is to raise awareness about the lives of refugees and asylum seekers in Wales and the rest of the UK.

We thought making banners with other Crafitivists would raise even more awareness about the issues - while stitching slogans and quotes on our mini banners we could really think about the words and discuss their meaning, and when we hung the banners up afterwards other people could read the quotes and perhaps want to investigate more.

It was a really interesting day and I met lots of lovely new crafters, we've hung up most of the banners, but there will be more to come - let me know if you see any!

oh and do go and see what other things the Craftivists do and see how you can get involved.

Thanks to Reynette from Oasis who gave us a bit more of an insight into the lives of refugees and asylum seekers in Wales by telling us about her work and experiences at Oasis Cardiff.
