The designs for this year’s Christmas cards in aid of Ganet’s Adventure School, Malawi are inspired by the hand painted signs and advertising which can be found across Malawi and much of Africa. I worked with two Malawian sign painters and artists, Peter Madede and ‘George’ Weya to create them during a recent trip to the school in Malawi. The quotes are sourced from the much-loved Christmas Carol ‘We Three Kings’ by Reverend John Henry Hopkins, Jr. and the well-known Christmas poem ‘A Visit from St. Nicholas’ by Clement Clark Moore.
The cards are available to purchase online now, £4 from each pack goes direct to the school, in Malawi: www.ganetsadventureschool.org/?p=408
