Stratford Arts Social: At Home - Sculpture Using Found Materials

Create sculptures at home quickly using objects found around the house or outdoors.

You will need

• Small objects around your house or from outside – these can be bits of rubbish, old toys, bottle caps, used candles, broken pegs, old crayons, any odds and ends.
• Elastic bands or string to tie things together – you can also use old wire, hair bands, shoelaces, or anything similar.

Activity length: 5 minutes, longer if you feel like it

Inspired by artists such as Picasso, Duchamp and Brancusi, this activity is about going on a quick search around your surroundings to find some interesting objects, and using them to create your own sculptures.
