...and so what do we do with 20+ excited students while bugs and gremlins are baking - we get them to write about their experience with polymer clay. Makes for incredible reading material - here's a sample:
Tia - Year 3/4
I like rolling the colours and my other thing I like was making my wings and making it flexible and playing with the clay.
Liam - Year 6
My bug was red/silver/pink and my favourite features of it were the face and antenna. I had lots of fun at the workshop and I hope to come again.
Reilly - Year 7
Today we done creative stuff with polymer clay. It's manmade so we got to make little bugs. It was fun because I like art and art was fun, it's fun making art.
Matthew - Year 6
I liked rolling the clay and how it felt. My bugs name is Michael Clark.
Klay - Year 6
I liked the rolling of the clay and the smooth bits of it. My buddies name is humpty dumpty.
Charlize - Year 3
Fun making bugs, making a marble, making it flexible. I like rolling it. I like playing with it.
Athallah - Year 4
It is fun when we mixed the colours together. It's creative, it's colourful, it's flexible, it's beautiful.
