In March artist/makers from Project Art Works are taking part in a group residency at Rye Harbour Discovery Centre in East Susssex. The residency offers Project Art Works artist/makers space in which to explore their creative processes, in particular in relation to the natural world.

Each week Charlie Stephen’s will be documenting the day and sharing the process through our Practice Blog.

Katie printed out the photos from week 1 and stuck them on the wall.

Walking at Rye Harbour

In the morning we went on a walk around Rye Harbour and collected things on our way.

What we found

We found four Sea Potatoes, which are about c1500 years old,  and Gabby found a the spider crab.

Materials in the studio

We took the natural materials into the studio. Charlie used sand, seaweed, clam shell and snail eggs to paint with.

We used the microscope to look at things we found more closely.

Will finished his work but didn’t fancy going for a walk, maybe next week.
