FEATURED INTERVIEW FOR THE MONTH
Darrell Wakelam is a 3D artist, teacher and trainer. I initially came across Darrell’s free artwork offering on twitter during the first UK national lockdown in 2020 and was so excited about the quality of the model making and the way that his suggested designs could be made by young children. Seeing my own family members and close friends managing childcare whilst working from home, the ideas jumped out as something that slightly older children could do independently, making use of materials that they already had access to. I had the privilege of sitting down to chat with Darrell about art, childhood and life on the Dorset coast.
