Lubaina Himid

 

In this workshop we introduced to the children Lubaina Himid’s work “Swallow Hard: The Lancaster Dinner Service”, a work realised through acrylic painted ceramics, meant to add to existing western patterns those things of the artist’s heritage that she felt not represented, not visible. This was just the starting point for the children, who have been enjoying using printed China ceramic as their canvases, painting over bits of the typical English decoration what was not there about them or what they liked more to be there.
