A lovely sunny afternoon and the DLWP was heaving with people taking in the exhibition and before we'd even got our photo booth up we had string of people itching to dress up and have their photo taken. Wigs, sunglasses, tiaras, gloves and hairy moustaches - all really popular for those seeking their inner 'star' and it wasn't just the children !

Great day last saturday!
Over the course of the day I worked with groups to make our own 'artverts' based on Warhol's iconographic images of classic packaging.
It was great fun and many people came and made pieces inspired by things such as Bubble gum, string, batteries, sellotape, cheese and even tornadoes (not quite sure how that one got in there!)
The response was great and I was impressed and inspired by everyones ingenuity and humour. One of my favourite moments was aiding in the recording of 'I like string'- a bonafide modern classic!
I will try and put some of them up here and some pics, just got to figure out this here blog thing!
