Junk Art Creations

During November 2015 Elworth Hall Primary school orgainsed a whole school project, themed SPACE, to coincide with Tim Peake's mission on the International Space Station. I worked with all years bar Reception making three large boards for outdoor display.

Junk Art Creations for Schools & Community Groups


I was commissioned by Crewe Town Council to produce a piece of work that could be part of the CreweFest.

The event was to celebrate everything that is good about Crewe, including its rich railway history.
I decided to create the outline of a train and carriages which people could come along to and fix items of junk within the outline.
The day was a great success with both boards completed on the day. They were taken back to my studio where I enhanced the black outline and spray-painted the junk panels. The slide show opposite shows images of preparation, through to finished piece.

These quirky sheep were made using old tee shirts. The tee shirts were cut in a special way to produce 'tarn' which was then used to make pompoms. These were then attached to the prepared boards to create the sheep's fleece - one of my favourite outcomes!

Turn a pile of waste cardboard into 2D textural art panels. Create crazy robots from tin cans and bits and bobs. Use plastic bottles to create colourful and wacky flower boards - melting and spray painting plastic - always a popular activity with children!
