Wire Bonsai Tree

14th October, 2021

During the second week of term 4, the students in the Cre8 Lab are busy creating a wire bonsai tree. The miniature tree is made out of 24 gauge wire and beads, twisted together in a perfect pattern to create branches, a trunk and roots which are then attached to a rock, drift wood or placed in a small pot.

Each design is unique and it always surprises me how different each creation is.

Because this is a challenge in dexterity, it is a bit time consuming to start with, but as the girls start to see their tree coming into shape, they get more and more excited to see their final result. And so far each student has surprised themselves.

Well done to all of you for trusting the process and completing your tree.
