mmm... rusty metal

Following our workshop on monday i've been thinking about possible ideas for a relief sculpture refrencing the painting of Edward Wortley Montagu. I think it would be quite interesting and exciting to use a combination of pieces of scrap and really shiny metal. The scrap metal could come from anywhere around the city (skips, the resistant materials room at your school, your garden shed etc.) and because of Sheffield's industrial heritage it might also help make the work a bit more relevent to people coming to the gallery. There was also some talk of incoorperating fabrics into the work because of the rather flowing clothes that Edward is modelling; therefore if anyone fancies raiding the textile sample section in John Lewis that would be most appreciated.

P.S. message for Susie, I would be very happy to take some photos of strangers in Sheffield with you and I have an important looking camera we could use so hopefully people would take us seriously!

Indeed that'd be great. In fact, are you free some time in the holidays to do it? Or even this friday I have a training day so would be able to go talk to stangers :)

If i'm correct you are the one with all the cool t-shirts, in which case we both go to King Edwards. However, I am not free on friday but will be free after the wednesday in the holidays so we could do it then. I'll post you a message in a few days to arrange it.

Haha well I do make some pretty cool tees :)

If you want, give me a ring on 07981765698 to arrange a time.

What year are you in? I think I know who you are but would be highly embarrased if I'm wrong :) I'm thinking the girl who is always in the art rooms and frankly amazing at drawing?

Without sounding too big-headed I think I meet your description :) Y13 going out with Sian Leary's bro...
Really sorry but I don't think i'm going to be able to do the photos before next week; i seem to have developed a cough/cold, probably revenge for too many late nights, chocolate cakes and cocktails on holiday :) ah well, what else are half-terms for?

See you on monday,

Ahh didn't know you were going out with Sian Leary's brother! That's cute :)

Too true about half terms but I have luckily managed to escape any penance for my partying!

See you Monday
