Earth hour lanterns

The window @ seventeen - Aberdeens creative hub

Some photography of a project I worked in involved making lanterns for a window display to light up the window during the world 'earth hour' we made geometric shapes from acrylic with the help of MAKE rgu @ seventeen, the workshop was open for the public to come and construct a lantern using pre cut acrylic shapes and tape. We then put in led lights and hung them from the window. They looked pretty awesome.

Making snow globes

How to make a snow/ dog globe .....




Key tips : make sure your jar opening and length is big enough to fit in what you want to feature in your snow globe.

Get a jar with a seal tight lid or glue the lid closed after you are finished with sealant glue

Use the lid to sick your objects on as its easier to glue to.

Build up the lid to raise your objects up so you can see them when it's all put together

Use plasticine!!!!! it works both to build up a little hill for your objects to sit on and acts like glue to hold them in place. It also works well in the water.

Dry snow globes ( ones with no water, just snow ) look just as good!!

You must use distilled/ bottled water NOT tap water as it goes mouldy pretty quickly!

Some of the mini trees you buy make the water turn green, go for plastic if you don't want that to happen.

Any thing goes even little plastic dogs - which you can spray paint any colour.

Shake it up!!

Seventeen

I really enjoyed being able to create a piece of art for the public to come and pertisipant in at 'seventeen' creative hub, Belmont street, as part of the 'open doors' day in Aberdeen. The art piece was in responce to an exhibition that was going on 'A to from B' the idea was that I would create a line going from A to B taking you on a journey. The public got involved and tied a bag or two (recycled) to the chicken wire structure in doing so they become part of the journey. Each of the two artists involved in 'A to from B' drew a virtual line which was put together to create the line I used.
