Class Craft: touch, feel and paint the past

This classroom technique emerged from the work of Neil Morley, an MA Art pupil at Staffordshire University. As part of Neil’s MA course, he produced a number of images that explored the structure and quirkiness of Britain’s class system. He used a wide range of materials – including paints, textiles and icons – and the outcome was a number of collagetype posters. Many historical periods can be explored in this way.
