As part of our Fantasy Plant project and Funded by LeftCoast we worked with year two at Revoe Learning Academy and here are their ‘Fantasy’ mushrooms. Here is a small selection of their work.
Each pupil picked out an unusual mushroom name from the ‘mystery bag’ and then drew out the design before making their own mushroom using recycled materials.
They turned out just great.
Four more year groups’ work to follow this week.
Working again with one of our favorite partner organisations Shabby2chic CIC and wonderful owner Sandra Johnson, a group of young people and YOT.
Over the next six weeks we will be working with the group to design items that are up-cycled, using printmaking, graffiti and shabby chic techniques.
We were really exited to be asked to work with this group of amazing young people while they built go karts with Phill and Graham at 4Techmotohttp://www.4techmoto.co.uk/
With Phill and Grahams skill at Blackpool t4Techmoto two teams built 2 go-karts for racing after two days build and a final day ‘fettling’ and painting up the
Boz worked with the two teams while they built the machines ready for racing on day three. while Mr Dee helped design and paint the custom graffiti on the finished karts.
