|The lovely Carole Miles|
During May, June and July 2013, Phase One began which was a consultation to gather information in order find out what arts activities the community would like to see in their area using commissioned artists in a variety of areas including dance, acting and visual art, throughout Boston Borough and South Holland. Carole and I joined forces and became the "Eloquent Fold" and worked on the project providing a number of engagement activities in a variety of public places including libraries, community centres and pop-up shops.

The activities we provided during July and August were Pin a Petal, Sewing the Seeds, Origami Fleet and Wish you Were Here and we did our best to encourage many different age groups to get involved. I was interested at the response we got. When presented with a craft actvitiy, Mums and Dads seem to often discount themselves seeing it as an opportunity to keep a child occupied. What can quite often happen is the parent, helps the child to the point of taking over their project. At this point, I find it is alway good to entice the parent to make something of their own, working alongside their child so they share each others creativity.
