Rachael Blakeway

My interest is in creating small 3d papier mache characters, decorations and collage pictures using everyday waste materials. I love using the colours, patterns and textures found on gift wrap, chocolate wrappers, broken earings and buttons and mixing them with paint and sparkle to make bright fun pieces of art and craft work. A champagne cork is turned into a horses head, a plastic juice carton opening becomes the bottom of a boat and some flower cellophane becomes part of a fairies dress! I also use alot of paper pulp for modelling. I have sold work at various art and craft fairs in Wales as well as exhibit in a few galleries. I am interested in working in schools on reccyling projects which can fit in with certain themes or topics. I am happy to show my work and give talks to small groups.
