Creative Partnerships invited Studio Baum to take part in an eighteen-month long education project with St. John’s School in Epping. The focus on the project was the environment. Taking the school’s surroundings of the beautiful, ancient Epping Forest as the starting point, we worked with Years 7 and 8 students to collate, create and curate a book about the ecology of and around the school. The content of the book was created over the course of the project and included creating artworks out of found and discarded objects, branding the project, cooking with seasonal produce, making home-made teas and working out energy consumption for the school. We set up a mini studio from which we worked with the students throughout the project.
