Theme: 200 years of Guides at Mammoth Cave

Materials and techniques: Fabric with screen printing and block printing. Color added with Crayola construction paper crayons and art sticks. Details on maps were written with a Sharpie.

Did you enjoy this project? Yes, we enjoyed working on this project. However, we had a little trouble getting ideas started for this project. Last year’s theme was easier to generate ideas. We also learned this year that we had a student who could sew the edges of our pieces.

About: Our pieces celebrate the guides of Mammoth Cave. We have made block prints of Stephen Bishop one of the earliest cave guides and Nick and Matt Bransford along with a 5th generation Bransford, Jerry Bransford who is a guide now at Mammoth Cave National Park. Our pieces also showcase images from one of the early maps that is copyrighted from 1899. We also have a piece that shows Stephen Bishop’s signature from Mammoth Cave in 1841.
