Milk bottle origami will introduce students to how everyday objects can be reused to create something else. Jane will show students how they can make an awesome mask using cutting and folding techniques with a milk bottle.
Each student will need a 2Litre milk bottle, scissors and crayons or Posca pens.
Teachers might also like to consider and discuss: What is a mask? When do we wear them and why? How are masks used in other cultures, in religion, performance and ceremony? Find examples.
Write a poem or story about ‘The many masks we wear’.
