Inverallochy School on the NE tip of Scotland has ended 2010 in style. They have shown how fences can be used as an art display for words (Doric wordies), for planting, plastic bag murals, weaving projects, dream catchers and much more. Yet when I popped by the school a few days ago, the creativity has continued.
The pre-school children have been decorating unwanted CD ROMs. Weatherproof and glitzy – even in winter.
And here’s a use for old toothbrushes, that I bet you hadn’t thought of…
The textile art continues, with the bead and knitting from one of the older classes. From a distance it looks kinda funky, even in its incomplete stage.
But look at the close-up detail. I used to do this “French knitting” on a “Knitting Nancy” as a child and never made much more than a mug mat. This is quite a collective project!
Right, so what will 2011 bring? At this point, the staff could do with some ideas and suggestions for continuing the fence art. The campaign to Give Ugly Fences a Makeover continues. Any thoughts, please, please, please add them to the comments section and I will pass them on.
