Fermynwoods Contemporary Art run a programme of alternative education specifically for young people who are permanently excluded from school, dual registered and for school age mothers. The programme invites artists to work with the young people to engage in art works and pedagogical activities. Louise Clarke's workshop, Montage Make used pre-printed matter to deconstruct images, collate and reconfigure them to construct new meanings and develop narratives.
Working with the artist, Louise Clarke the young people explore narratives and developed characters which were used to expand vocabulary, prompt discussion and explore emotional situations. The workshop supported working together which they often found difficult. Completed work was photographed introducing focused study, decision making, editing and technical skills. This work is direct and a tangible outcome of an engaged art practice and one of the works Louise Clarke used to illustrate her column in The Saatchi Gallery Magazine: Art & Music
