Mini Morris Project- Kids art project during CVD19

This is a push budget fundraiser to extend the project to more areas and families. I am a Walthamstow based artist currently working on a not-for-profit art project called the 'Mini Morris Project'.

At a recent visit to the William Morris Gallery I created a 3D scan of the bust of William Morris, then using photogrammetry, I created a small 3D printed replica of the bust, and now, with the blessing of the William Morris Gallery I plan to move forward with the 'Mini Morris Project'.

During downtime created by COVID-19, I will be using silicone moulds of my scan of William Morris to produce mini William Morris white plaster models to help keep homebound children occupied using art and creativity. I will be connecting to schools and local councils to find homes for the sculptures. 

The models will be supplied FREE to families based in E17 who have school-aged children and can use the models as paintable art and history devices. If you wish to have one posted to you please contact me and I will organise an estimate for the postage costs only.  



INCLUDED

The kit will include:

• 1 x plaster model of William Morris
• Information about William Morris
• How the sculpture was made (including our corvid-19 precautions)
• Responsible safety recommendations

BUDGET

Initially, with the current budget I can produce approx 45 Mini Morris Sculptures, if we overshoot the target i can produce more sculptures and possibly include accessories such as paints in packs.

The budget will be used for:

• Silicon Mould Material 
• Plaster bag 25kg
• Assorted casting accessories (ie Mould release,  buckets etc)
• Packaging
• Printing of flyers containing information. 
• Cleaning and gloves protective gear for safety during Covid-19 concerns.

Please feel free to contact me at [email redacted] if you have any questions or would like to support the project
