milk bottle sculpture school project

The Milk Bottle Eiffel Tower

2014-08-12 12.41.34

We went down to Cowra last week to help St Raphael’s Primary School build a 4m tall Eiffel Tower, to complement their “Passport To Paris” themed Art Show.

The whole school collected and cleaned 400 milk bottles in the months leading up the build. The year 3’s and year 4’s took it in turns to spend a few hours with the Milkcrate team and work together to construct the structure.

We were very impressed with the way the students took initiative and came up with additional design ideas (using primarily milk bottle bits) to complement our basic design. The students worked together over 2 days to get the tower standing up and then lighting up from the inside with LED strip lights!2014-08-11 12.21.45-1 2014-08-12 16.22.19
