darts at Home: Angie Hardwick
Find out more about the artists creating your darts at Home activities
Angie is a Visual artist from Sheffield who specialises in ceramics. She does lots of playing with clay and gets lots of other people playing with clay too! She has been delivering work with darts on a freelance basis for around 6 years now, with lots of different groups.
I love working with Creative Directions, they are so welcoming. I really feel part of the group and not just the tutor! Some of the clay outcomes haven't turned out quite as people expected, but we've embraced it and laughed together. Its a joy to be able to make someone smile - especially when they are struggling with various issues.
We asked Angie what has been helping her to get through lockdown – she says: “The weather! We have been fortunate to have has some beautiful warm days. Everyone feels better when it’s sunny, and I’m lucky enough to have a garden that I have been able to enjoy it in.”
In terms of being creative, Angie has had to adapt quickly – particularly with technology. She has had to make lots of videos including Blue Peter style ones complete with ‘here’s one I made earlier’. She also says “I don’t know how we ever managed without Zoom!”
For darts at Home, Angie has created a step by step Introduction to Collage. The activity focuses on a scenic view, such as a beach or countryside. You can using objects from around the home, like envelopes or sponge to create your own textural artwork. Angie will also be creating some special activities for our Creative Directions group in the near future.
