Inspired by the hearts created in Damien Hirst’s Spin Workshops that took place in 2009 at Damien Hirst’s Requiem exhibition at the Pinchuk Art Centre in Kiev, Ukraine, we decided to have a go at making our own spin hearts using three techniques, the first ones were created dripping several colours of ready mixed paint  onto a pre-cut heart and then we placed another heart on top and spun around by hand; the second was created by spinning a pre-cut heart with drips of ready mixed plant around on a plate and the third method we used a purpose made spinning disc craft set from the Early Learning Centre. It was fun to see what colours we created from the paint that we added to each heart and to see how well the different spinning techniques worked.
