As Sisters We Soar

20th August, 2020

During term three the Makerspace and Cre8 Lab students spent the first 4 weeks creating feathers for our wings mural. Each feather was painted in shades of blue and white, cut out in three different sizes and shapes, and then decorated with a white chalk design to add texture, variety and individuality to each feather.

During week 5 all the feathers were collected and then the library staff glued each feather into place on a pair of very large wing shapes. The wing shapes were made out of coreflute materal and then the wings were attached to a black wall using velcro tape.

There are approximately 200 feathers used to complete the wings, and the wing span is 4 metres. Below are a collection of images of the process from start to finish.
