In the last two sessions of Maryhill art group in 2018, with it getting closer to Christmas (and also the fact that the centre staff asked if we could make some decorations for the building) we had festive pattern themed groups.
Folk seemed to take to this well, combining craft and drawing. Following our guidance they folded and cut thin paper snowfalkes in a variety of designs, mounting onto coloured paper or colouring the shapes of the negative spaces.
We also had some free doodling time, with natural geometry and more chaotic textures to look at such as fractal shapes, or of ice cracking, and this helped us create more free festive patterns such as with stars and simple trees.
We hung and stuck on the walls many of the pieces in the Maryhill Hub building. Mince pies, chocolates, tea and ginger cookies helped make the nights enjoyable and relaxed 🙂
