For the last few weeks I have been working on an education project with Solihull Gallery. The work is based around an unopened envelope from 1970 (see previous post for more work). I have created a giant wooden version of the envelope that is full of sealed replica envelopes. Inside the envelopes are letters that I have written, that explore what could be inside the sealed package. These letters are the starting point of educational activities for school kids.

The kids will be making their own interpretations of what could be inside the package by writing some of their own letters. These letters will be posted to a number of artists who have agreed to get involved in the project. These include Si Peplow, Ben Javens, David Shillinglaw, Newso, and Sarah Coulston, amongst others.
