TOTEMS in Progress

In this project we have been creating sculptural totems from wood and some found objects. Parents and children worked together to cut the timber, drill and glue. At first it was quite hard, especially trying to get the work to stand up and balance. But it soon became easier and everyone has loved the process of adding more and more to their work. I thought we would take two weeks to create these totems but it has been hard to stop! They are now painted … more photos to come.
