Design and Technology – Art Straw Sculptures

As part of our ongoing ‘Sculptures in the North East’ topic, we have been designing our own sculptures that could represent what our school means to us.

We initially planned out our design individually before agreeing on a group idea that we could actually begin to build. As a part of our process, we had to decide on which materials we could use to create the skeleton of our structure and this week, we have been exploring the possibility of using Art Straws.

At the start of the session, we were shown a variety of different ways that Art Straws can be joined together. We then practised these joins with our partners to see if we could begin to make more complicated shapes.
