An aspect of our project is to teach our skills as artists. Nicola began by teaching a printmking, drawing activity which produced some amazing results with the more able. I did some simpler mono printing of homes and using recycled objects for printamking with others. Everyone was busy and engaged!

What makes a home? How do you feel when you are away from home? What are some other types of homes? Where is home for you? Who lives at your home?

The responses given by the group at FIRST were both familiar and unexpected.

Nicola and I began our project at FIRST (Foundation for Independence Recreation and Social Training Inc) -  a provider of disability support services. 

We began by asking lots of questions of the young people, and collating anwers - this gave us a feel for our participants; where they're at and a possible direction for the content of the Cocoon Project. We thoroughly enjoyed our welcome and the enthusiasm of all at FIRST.
