We've been super busy this week making not one, not ten but 55 wooden Bug Houses for an upcoming workshop at Lyndhurst Infant School.

As you may know we both studied Sculpture at the University of Brighton, so we're pretty comfortable with woodwork, and were very excited for the opportunity to get back into the workshop!

We're encouraging the children to focus on recycling and the environment during the workshop so it's only fitting to use recycled materials for the Bug House frames.

A pallet and a discarded futon base have proved to be the winning finds so far.

We teamed up with our Sculpture friend Nicola and together we've sawed, drilled and sanded over two hundred pieces of wood - now all we have to do is collect the moss and sticks to pack the houses with!
