As part of the project we produced 100 bookmarks to be sent to the other participants from around the world. In return we received a set of bookmarks containing our bookmark and those of the other participants. It was very interesting and exciting to receive bookmarks from artists all around the world.
The origin and inspiration for our bookmark design was that the group required a logo that was eye catching and could be used as an official group emblem. We wanted to include imagery that reflected the range of Arts and Crafts which the group has produced. Members of the group submitted designs and the group experimented with different images, mediums and printing techniques. Above is the chosen design, which was designed by group member Marlene Kernohan.
