Patrick Dougherty, inspiration for year 3

Year 3 have been looking at the work of stick sculpture artist Patrick Dougherty. He uses sticks to weave structures of a monumental scale, which required saplings by the truckloads. Over the last thirty years, he has built over 250 of these works, and become internationally acclaimed. His sculpture has been seen worldwide—from Scotland to Japan to Brussels, and all over the United States.

Year 3 have completed maquette’s (see previous post) in preparation for our big build in a few weeks time.
