WOW Hackney

Hackney Wow is a magazine guide to Hackney written by children. Emily, together with teacher KJ Stephens, ran 2 projects exploring Sutton House and Hackney Marshes Adventure Playground with children from Rushmore Primary School. At Sutton House the children were inspired by the history and portraits in the house to create their own self portraits, imagining themselves as Tudor residents. The finished work was displayed at CLR Library, Hackney. See the guide here. At Hackney Marshes Adventure Playground the children used playing and messing around as a way of creating images. They rolled balls with ink down the slide, used the rope swing as a giant drawing tool and used mud to make tracks. See the guide here.
