BRIDGWATER COMMUNITY SCHOOL – CARNIVAL HEADDRESSES

For the past two days, I have been working with students from Bridgwater Community School to produce some wire and paper Carnival Headdresses, as part of their curriculum enrichment.  The Year 7 & 8 students were incredibly motivated and the outcomes were a visual feast!  Here are a couple of examples…

LARMER TREE FESTIVAL – WIRE WORKSHOPS

Over the weekend I ran some drop-in Adult Wire Workshops at the Larmer Tree Festival. There were plenty of participants who all produced some wonderful pieces – from dreamcatchers using found materials incorporated into wire and wicker frames to wire creatures and button-decorated tiaras! Most impressive was a wire larmer man made by Julie.  She worked on her piece all day, then gave it to her friend as a present!  Below are a few photos:
