Holt Surestart Centre - collage of Hand Creatures

This piece was made by drawing around childrens hands (and adults), onto fabric and paper, and then transforming them into new creatures. With the simple addition of eyes, and stick-arms/legs, the handshapes became chickens, fish, people etc.
Working with very young children with their parents and carers, Jessica Perry co-ordinated textile, paper and clay artworks for permanent display in Childrens Centres around Norfolk.
These permanent artworks give the Surstart Centres a strong visual identity upon entry, and are a positive experience for the participants involved.
