Playtime at Life

A while ago I was approached by the Centre for Life here in Newcastle to do a workshop/communal build project as part of their Make-It festival. They'd seen some pictures of my cardboard totem pole (shown below) when I'd applied for the resident maker position, so they wanted something in a similar vein but much larger scale.


We ended up going for a life-size garden made entirely out of cardboard, with me tackling the larger or more complex builds while Life's science explainers led the younger contributors in making things to populate the space. You can see the full build on Life's flickr feed here, but here's a few of my favourites from the weekend:

Keep crafty,
