For this project, we initially looked at the amazing wierd and wonderful sculptures by Chiaozza: https://www.eternitystew.com/
I also took in a selection of my own cacti and succulents for the kids to draw, to get their imaginations rolling and give inspiration for more shapes and forms. They then designed what they wanted to create in papier mache and cardboard, and set to with the papier mache! In total this turned into a 3 week project, as some of the designs were wonderfully ambitious – they really pushed themselves which was great to see!
The forms were constructed over wooden skewers which were then stuck into holes in wooden blocks.
You can see the results, though the photographs really don’t do them justice!
