Alice’s Garden

Artist: Hayley, Charlotte, Milla and Elodie Ballantyne

One’s imagination can be a powerful thing ‘Why sometimes I’ve believed as many as 6 impossible things before breakfast” – Alice in Wonderland.
Alice’s Garden is our view of what Alice’s imagination brought to life. Inspired by the story of ‘Alice in Wonderland’ we showcased her imaginary garden of talking plants, tiny hidden doors, a rabbit hole, cheshire cat and many other amazing creatures. With Alice, a small girl amidst her big imagination, this artwork depicts a small glimpse of what true imagination can be like through Alice’s eyes.
Keeping with the Waste 2 Art theme; steel and aluminium cans, we strove to recycle as much as we could from home and started by saving our easter egg wrappers, used soda cans and even some old wire that held chicken wire fencing together. We also utilised other things around our house such as dried plants/pressed flowers, pistachio shells, old nail polish, jumper tassels, hot glue and wood glue, a cut up soaker hose and acrylic paints to piece the artwork together.
If only we could all be like Alice and bring our imaginations to life with reusing and recycling our waste.
