Ships are Sailing!

The Tall Ship Fleet were in Liverpool at the weekend - how could I not take photos!  

Was a warm sunny day even though the photos look a bit overcast....ha ha

As luck would have it a while ago I had a go at making some boats from Paper Mache.  The structure is based on a traditional origami technique.

Originally I was going to be delivering workshops at the event but in the end was working elsewhere, ah well another time...

First efforts at making some wee boats with some screen printed waves in the background.
