Imagine, build, creates, play with materials, draw, mix concepts… as if you were still a child.
This week, I like a very different but creative projects and products that both you and your kids will love. Here you will find unusual materials to do art, crafts and also furniture. An invitation to dream, experiment and have fun.
Hope these projects will inspire you to try (and invent) new things!
The exhibition Photography Now at Bricklane Gallery in London is showing ‘Only kids‘ series by Oliver Haupt, a celebration of the openminded creative perception of kids.Growing up means accepting many rules, our emotions get restricted and poor.
Boris Tellegen Concrete Toy This iconic work by Boris Tellegen was originally designed in 2005 and executed in a 4,5m large wood sculpture for an exhibition in Pittsburgh. For Boris, it made sense to execute this toy robot again this time in concrete, the least child-friendly material you can imagine. A nice contradiction and a beautiful material to work with.
A really great idea for doing a craft project with your kids this weekend. You can invent a character with everyday objects found at home or play with cardboard boxes and create a sculpture. Assemble, combine, paint… You can also show Marcel Duchamp’s assemblages and Picasso’s cardboard collages to your kids.
Orzeszek – (means peanut) done by Martyna Wojciechowska. Mesh, silicone and clay are the unusual materials chosen for a beautiful and playful lamp, created for kids of design lovers. Play with lights and enjoy!
