Now that’s some paper crafted perfection right there! am I right or am I right? (Yes your RIGHT!)
I was lucky enough to be asked to hold a workshop for the National Gallery of Victoria (NGV) new exhibition ‘Shifting Gear’ which is all about car design and how it’s evolved over the years. So with my trusty box full of magical crafting materials I headed over to NGV to whip up some paper crafted racing cars with a bunch of super talented kids!
The best thing about running workshops for kids is that you never know what your going to get out of them and usually its going to be 10x more creative then what you may have had in mind. I also love being able to inspire/set a ticker in their minds to think outside the box and to create something that they could only dream of. (I believe we did exactly that on the day.)
I have to give a special applause to a 10 year old boy named Will who smashed his car out of the park by not just making a really awesome ride but for finishing first and then going on to create the backdrop for the photo shoot! (He created cone trees and clouds of dust to make it look like the cares had movement.) Thats what you call skills!
