Make a concertina landscape!

Inspired by the collage animation in David Blandy’s film, The Edge of Forever, use recycled cardboard to layer a landscape! Create as many details as you like, or keep it simple with only a couple of layers!

Saturday 25 March
Create a landscape from sound!

Foley is a term used in film making to create sounds using different methods!
