    Ha! Sheila – i didn’t know you had done this! I have been doing the STEAM project since September with my students. We have come through to making a nature (originally nautilus inspired) sculpture using wire and tissue paper – looking at the works of artist Odine Lang (and Theo Jansen for the technology part). I was just googling to see if I could find further tips as some of the students are finding their gluey fingers making working difficult – and found your post! Wow! We have dissected (and drawn) lillies and roses too – drawing the components and seeing how they are put together.. one of my oldest students is making a large wire and paper (drawings) nautilus piece….
    I have explored ink on the tissue paper – 🙂 I have also wrapped flat , bent floristry wire (PIsces Art) inside tissue within flat pieces so it shows up as a drawn line inside for instance a petal or droplet shape – and thought I would also consider thread sandwiched inside – to look like a drawn line…

      Hi Ellie! That’s great that this post popped up from Google! This dates a couple of years back – but still nice to look at the work again. I’ve just finished making giant sculptural lanterns over a four sessions – and am really pleased with how they came out – students loved the scale and constructing with withies. I’m about the write the post now! We’d love to see what you’ve been up to! We’d love to have another post from the Little Art Studio! Hope all is well! Best wishes, Sheila
