Inspiring Plasticine Sculpting

Perhaps this is how the author Barbara Reid started.
Or the artist, film maker Nick Park.
Maybe this was how James May began to consider his plasticine garden. 


Tiny characters being designed to tell familiar stories and rhymes.
Or becoming characters in new stories to be shared with friends.


Recreating a scene from a cherished book.


Telling stories while creating stories.
The learning of friendship.


Connecting to their world. 
Connecting to each other.



The language of sculpting.
The language of learning.


Arctic worlds emerge.


And transform into Santa's workshop.
