Willow Work

The children in Years 3 and 4 are working with artist Tim Davies over Art Week

Today Year 4 are building up the willow framework over which tissue paper is then stretched to create patterns and designs.

This technique is fantastic for creating impressive sculptural installations, carnival costumes and 3D scenery. Children can work easily with these materials building large and very colourful three-dimensional artwork. We look forward to seeing the completed artwork next Thursday when Year 3 will apply the final touches to the collaborative masterpiece.
