MAKING LIGHT WORK…
9th May, 2017

Much fun (and a tiny bit of frustration!) was had by all at the giant cardboard lampshade-making working bee held in the new Big Little Shop last Sunday to help Halin make another three shades.

 

Halin’s challenge in fitting out the new shop was how to use our endless supply of discarded waste to create six giant lampshades easily and quickly.


 

After several experiments, and pondering a number of different materials, Halin got a little bit excited about assembling faux random weave basket shades using cardboard strips joined with the miraculous hot glue gun. Very big and hearty thanks to everyone who came and helped with the construction.

 

 

Watch this space for more sculptural adventures in cardboard. Rumour has it that there may be a bit of cardboard craft action in the laneway for Winter Magic.
