Making Shells

By Sheila Ceccarelli

This was an afternoon session for year four pupils at Ridgefield Primary School, Cambridge, and part of AccessArt’s Brilliant Makers Club, a campaign supporting and championing making experiences in schools.

This session was aimed at children who love making, and was limited to eight pupils, to allow for a rich, and rewarding experience and plenty of time to play with, and explore materials.

Constructing shells felt like an appropriate activity for a mid-summer session, and an excellent theme to inspire building with stuff and exploring how materials might work together to create form, structure and texture.
