Stalham Junior School, Norwich
Mixed age group
The photographs displayed here demonstrate
the outcomes of just one of 23 workshops created by
staff, governors, friends and local artists for students
from all year groups. Here's how this one was described
to the children:
'Ever heard of 'trashion'? If you are interested in
fashion and recycling, this could be just the thing
for you. Calling all designers to bring inspiration
to this spring's fashion collection and design something
different for the catwalk.'
Since Renoir painted 'The Umbrellas', millions of umbrellas
have been thrown away and are now filling up landfill
sites. In response to this, the students recycled unwanted
umbrellas to make new fashion items.
