The Arnolfini Gallery asked Tee to develop an artwork that would integrate well with the new development of St. Werburgh’s Primary School. Since St. Werburgh’s is part of a Forest Schools programme, Tee decided to develop a workshop to press flowers and leaves from the nearby forrest and to use them for designs that would be printed on foils that would be mounted on the rosace-shaped windows, much to the same effect as stained glass. In a workshop, the children made their own pressed-flower journal and created compositions of the pressed flowers and leaves in the shape of the quarter-circles of the windows. These were used as inspiration for the arrangements of the collages.
