Particle Article recycling workshop

 What Happens in this Particle Article recycling workshop?

In this highly creative workshop the participants get the opportunity to create their very own mythical and magical creatures out of discarded bits of waste materials and rubbish.  We want the attendees to explore the nature of found objects and find new uses for these discarded material's using a variety of craft skills and exploring aspects of memory and the self.  This session also develops teamwork and communication skills. Sessions may also include storytelling and creative writing.


What areas does this Particle Article recycling workshop cover on the national curriculum?

Can cover a wide section of the curriculum, e.g the science of the materials used and how they behave, art, creative writing (often include stories), personal development (can be adapted to explore identity).

These workshops work really well for group working and forming relationships. Symbolism by using objects is very effective for exploring transition.
