Crazy, wired animals

Artist: Cudgegong Valley Public School

At our school we have been learning about waste and recycling.
The children were shocked by the amount of clothes that go into landfill each year and how much water is used to produce fabric. We decided to reuse clothing in a new and exciting way by making wire sculptures and using used clothing somehow. Creating a crazy, wire sculpture animal and wrapping fabric around them might produce some great results. The children brought in used, old clothing from home and even some of mum’s nighties. Netwaste inspired us and demonstrated how to make the 3D sculptures, bringing to life the wire and old, used clothing which could have ended up in landfill to produce something really fantastic and fun.
