Sculptural Carnival Headdresses
We will create colourful, decorative Carnival headdresses, using recycled materials such as bottle tops, plastic bags and wire, learning a range of skills - moulding wire forms, wrapping and weaving. Work will be inspired by the issue of waste in our world, plastic oceans, and the plight of creatures who are suffering from the effects of our rubbish. Materials will be provided, but you are welcome to bring along your own collection of recycled beads, buttons and bottle tops.
