From Bag to Beast

After years of making lampshades from plastic bags, it seemed time to push the boundaries of audience and time frame for working with this luxurious medium.  Last weekend I delivered short workshops for families at Roald Dahl Museum and Story Centre.  Sadly the weather didn't favour us with the glowing sunlit backdrop that I hoped for, but still, we managed a lovely array of beasts from our new textured material. 20180210_125548 Little time to gather photos, and sadly the weather was not in the mood to light up our creations but here's a quick shot.
