3000 Pencils! done & dusted. drinks please!

Sam Crawford donates his old derwents for a bit of rainbow fever.

Marg Ackland (again, Go marg!) contributes a final bundle from a student at Meadowbank Tafe.

108 pencils from Scotland! Sheila, I wish you could come see the installation!

Robyn Lance donates 52 pencils, brought from her family in Goulburn

Louisa McCaughan (you little gem) has collected a bunch of kids pencils from Hawthorn East, Melbourne. Apparently they are straight from the pre-school craft corner and they use them with their sticker books and scrap books. Cuteness.

Sam Crawford Architects 5% creative time - thanks SCA

sam crawford architects very generously gives 5% of studio time for side projects - which gave us the space to get going with this project. thank you, sam. other people in the studio are doing various research projects, and we are getting ready to hang this project. it still takes up a heap of our spare time, but it's very helpful to be able to work on the project during office hours also. thanks again sca, from claire and felicity.
