“It was a really worthwhile experience and I enjoyed her approach to the medium of collage and its potential for exploring difficult political themes.
We were led in this by Farah in an introductory sound and movement session which helped to generate ideas.
The activity following this of making a group piece was very involving and everyone seemed to enjoy it as much as I did, sharing together  ideas and responses etc t
The resources (magazines, paper, primed canvas, brushes and glue) were very well thought out and a nice quality, which all contributed to a good final result!”
