School Workshop: Shimmer and Shape your Subject

These can become 2 or 3-dimensional artworks like (kinetic) mobiles, sculptures, garden pieces, cards, frames or wands; as individual take-home creations; or a collaborative effort towards a public-art installation for the school.* Tactile, imaginative and fun; simple or complex techniques involve a few math concepts. Making a paper-plan, drawing, folds, cutting, patterns, embossing, and various assembly options. The scraps are worth saving for other small projects!
