The girls sculptures are coming along now and the addition of the fungi really adds to it.

Today was quite a hectic session. I managed to get two groups working on two types of coral whilst the other girls worked towards finishing their tiles. They are doing great , I'm so impressed with their efforts and a small group came back at lunch to carry on too.

Group 2 are doing well with their wire sculptures too. Most will be starting their decorative fungi work during the next session. They are going to have to think abut the composition in a very different way to the tiles as in some respects it's as important about the spaces left blank as it is about choosing how to present the fungi they produce.

The sculptures are coming on well, much better than I had anticipated. The girls have started adding various papers to the structures today, some have used tissue paper whilst others have used coffee filter papers, both are very effective. The sculptures that weren't made of wire, that the majority of the girls made before I got involved with the fungi have been adding the additional pieces to their work today.

I don't think I will get this piece completed in time for Wednesday as it takes so much coral to fill but the girls will get the idea. This one is fairly easy to create and requires no wire but will take the longest for them to complete.

I've been working on a couple of sculptural ideas for the girls to look at next Wednesday when I next work with them. There are a couple of girls who have already started working on their sculptures but for the rest of them I am planning on showing small groups how to create which ever sculpture they opt for.

Lots of the girls have finished their coral tiles, so todays lesson started with me showing them the next and final stage to this project. We are going to work with white papers only this time to bring the girls work closer to the way I work, concentrating the techniques they have learnt to the ones that work best with the sculptural forms they choose. I want them to really refine their skills now too, this should be clear to see, being restricted to white paper should really show off their achievements.

The girls handed in their work today. I am so impressed by how hard they have worked on their home learning to get these reults!

I taught a few of the first group how to make the wire/paper sculptures today. They are doing well but don't know how long it takes to cover the structure yet!
