‘Melting Galaxies’ is a community arts project for three young people from the Speke / Garston Area of Liverpool.
The aim is to find three participants ages 18-21 that need a boost of confidence.
I will teach them to create a set of galaxy glass marbles in my glass workshop Mersey Glass Works based in L19 8JA.
Each of them will have a day of work and artistic experience. They will gain insight into a heritage craft, learn about health and safety, work environments, engineering, the chemical industry and how neon art is made.
I will organise a meeting of all three towards the end of the project to reflect on the experiences made during their day.
I will also create a social media page with the art works for them to use for networking in the future.
It aims at building resilience, giving inspiration and creating networks
