Celia Smith uses wire to create sculptures. Each sculpture she makes is  three-dimensional drawing with the wires representing a quality of line. Birds are her main inspiration, finding that wire has a spontaneity that can
give sculptures a feeling of life and energy.
The children were taught skills to join wire and build up a 3D model with
different wires. They experimented throughout the day creating models
of minibeasts which were brilliant. The children had a fabulous day.
