Arnhem Wharf Primary Shine Week

Shine week gives children, at Arnhem Wharf, the chance to design and make furniture

1st April 2009 - 30th April 2009

Artist Darcy Turner worked with the 120 pupils in Year 3 and 4 delivering paper stick sculpture workshops. The project brief was to design and make furniture which would be used in the Lower Key Stage 2 production of ‘Roald Dahl’s Goldilocks and the Three Bears’. Pupils learned how to use the paper rolling and construction equipment through exploration which helped them understand the building process.

Pupils worked co-operatively in teams and divided tasks between them. Throughout the process they were making adjustments, modifying the design and evaluating their work in relation to the desired outcome, i.e. considering scale, strength, aesthetics and purpose.
