Project Description list of schools and works
Working with Wade Deacon High School, we are exploring the theme of METAMORPHOSIS, using paper to fold, cut, form and shape into sculptural works. Part of our research will take us out to Victoria Park and the Butterfly House to consider how creatures such as butterflies undergo a process of change (metamorphosis) through their lifecycle. The final work will be displayed at the Brindley Gallery in Runcorn in January 2015.
