THE BOY WHO CRIED WOLF

In 2023 I worked with Lakeside Arts and Year 3 children from Djanogly Strelley Academy in Nottingham to create this installation inspired by Tutti Frutti's production of The Boy Who Cried Wolf.


I worked with the children over five sessions to create four sheep sculptures and various other elements of the installation including trees wrapped in wool, wolf collages and christmas jumper bunting.


The sheep - named Lazy, Snowy, Tinsel and Ronaldo - are made from a variety of recycled materials including mop heads, cardboard tubes, an old high chair, desk fan casings, coffee cup lids, scrap fabric, a bike seat and hockey sticks.
