This workshop takes pupils on a journey around our current exhibition Mother River by Yan Wang Preston. In the first part of the workshop, pupils will take part in discussions exploring the environment, where we live today and how it makes us who we are.

We will then work together to create a photo journey that spans the entire length of the gallery! Pupils will make paper boats and use a range of images and words to explore what we might see along an imaginary river. At the end of the session they will use film editing software to make a short digital animation of their journey.

Curriculum areas:
 Art and Design, Geography

Led by New Focus, whose volunteer members are aged from 16 to 25, the project will bring to light rarely-seen photographs made by women at the frontline to record their experiences.
