    These are stunning and touching too as personalities shine through the sculptures – what you write about the frustrations that working with materials can bring, though resonates, it’s obvious that you facilitated a really positive making experience here and what comes through is a shear celebration of individuality and that ‘innocent’ creativity that comes pouring out when making and you just know what needs to be done next … Thanks Paula!

    I love these Paula and am thinking of doing something similar with a group – How long did they take you all?

      Hello Rachael, I guess it took about an hour for me to prepare the ten plinths (befire the class, just because the room I rent isnt good for mess… though the children would have actually loved to have made them) and then 2 x 1 hour sessions for the children to work on them… good luck and keep us posted xxp

    Thanks Paula. I’m running it with a group of children from the Tavistock Hospital next week. I will definitely keep you posted!

    These are stunning! I have made figures from wire before but the plinth just adds so much to these and the personalities shine through! Can’t wait to try these, really inspiring post.
    Many thanks.
