The power of the pompom..
With our sister brand creating knitwear made in Orkney and Shetland, Mixter Maxter, we have been working on a project with a primary school to build a pompom wall of positivity.
Our aim was to hold a series of workshops which focused on positivity and creativity.
We took workshops with Glaitness School, during which we asked the children to draw two pictures, one of them doing what made them happy and then a second post showing their faces when they felt happy. We created collages using those images, mixing everyone's work together to make a bigger abstract piece of art. We then taught the kids how to make pompoms - which they loved. Pompom making is a great activity for all age groups and abilities. With those pompoms, we built a wall of positivity which we are about to install in the school to create a sensory art piece that reflects the importance each member of any community is to the bigger picture. We needed a lot of pompoms for this project so we also used pompoms from our pompom social project where people donated their time to make a pompom - more info here - https://mixtermaxter.com/mixter-maxter-pompom-social-product-launch/
We would love to take this project further, so please get in touch if you would like to work with us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
