Walk, Make, Invent – Blaydon

What do you see when you walk down a street? Last Friday we noted: coal holes, dry middens, a boot-scrape, washing hooks, dressed and rough cut stone and a quarry on our ‘archaeological’ walk to Blaydon Library.

With reference material to hand, my fellow explorers (students from St Thomas More School) and I figured out varying ways of making books from recycled bottles.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAAt present they are individual pieces, but I’d really like them linked up to create a lit ‘book-stack-spiral’. Luckily there are a few real ‘problem solvers’ in the group, I reckon together we’re about half way to inventing an elegant solution.
