Papier maché is an excellent creative 'green' material for making
functional and artistic objects.
The objects on display are all made from a framework of recycled wire or wire and wood covered with a mix of papier maché, made from 'The Guardian' newspaper, linseed oil, pva glue, plaster, wallpaper paste and water. They are painted with waste paint, which could otherwise end up in the landfill. We have had no difficulty in acquiring paint that is no longer required; people seem to be happy to see it put to good use.
Win a papier maché bird box or jewellery tree.
