Today’s session in Cambridge turned into a bit of a creature feature–in a good way!
We spent some more time working on bottle top magnets (practice makes perfect) and things definitely took a turn towards the “monstrous”. When we were finished, some of the group members took some time to write introductions for us to post on the site. Check them out here. Now you can find out about the people behind our crazy creations and see their favourite work in our galleries. We’re so proud of the work they’ve done over the past several months! Have a look, and let them know what you think!
Green magnet is shocked, yes shocked, by your behaviour.
Well, we still haven’t found a charity that wants any of our bottle tops yet, but we managed some fun upcycling with them yesterday. Check out these bottle top magnets:
I especially like that the green magnet on the top left can be opened up to express shock if the need arises. These cracked us up, so we’re looking forward to perfecting our technique next week. If you fancy a tutorial, let us know–we have some avid photographers in the group, so we’re happy to photo the whole process. Yesterday we also took advantage of the first non-rainy day this week to do some more work on our plastic bottle flowers. (Which is great, because life just doesn’t offer enough opportunities to don such sweet-looking safety gear!) Gratuitous action shot:Still a work in progress, but so far I think they look amazing! Now we need to decide how to display them, i.e. garland, wreath, fascinators, magnets, or just arranged beautifully in a big, fat vase. Hmm. Any suggestions?
