Anansi project.

During April ,artist Alan Birch has been working with the African Caribbean Carers Group and Andrea Winn at Manchester Museum. Centre users have been using printmaking to illustrate the Anansi story told by  group member , Grace .Relief printing, collograph and drypoint techniques were employed to tell the sort of Anansi flying between Bird Cherry Island and Bird Island to eat the eggs of the resident crocodile and make his escape in a boat rowed by two fish. The prints and a video of the story will be displayed in Manchester Museum later in the year.
