Headdresses, Endangered Sea Creatures, made with All Hallows Prep School students, Years 4-8
Recycled and found materials including plastic bags & bottles, newspaper, chicken wire, aluminium cans, old steel nails, bottle tops, buttons, beads, wire and glue
The headdresses were made by students in Years 4-8, who studied art enrichment classes with Fiona. The sculptures were made from found, reclaimed and discarded materials, giving them a new life. The project was inspired by the urgent issue of waste in our modern world, our plastic oceans, and the plight of creatures such as albatrosses and turtles who are suffering from the effects of our rubbish, ‘a stand against plastic pollution so we can see our sea creatures thrive once again’ (Tia West, Year 8). ‘Making my headdress was great fun!’ (Louis Roberts, Year 6).
