A selection of photos from our workshop:
This month's Messing About workshop also featured cardboard. Many of the teachers present had been participating in the #cardboardchallenge with the children in their classes and brought that excitement.
We also had three children attend the teacher workshop with us.
We noticed a series of 3d compositions were created - most of them were representational (ships, robots, pigs).
Where last month had produced such a wide variety of strategies for messing about, we wondered about the parallel work this month. Was this a product of the teachers' time messing about with the cardboard over the past month? Was this because it was the second workshop and some level of comfort had been established? Was this because the children present were so comfortable taking inspiration from the work around the room (where adults might feel uncomfortable "copying")?
A huge thank you to Ryan from ABC Imaging for the great donation of cardboard tubes
