Stu­dents get cre­ative

Manjimup-Bridgetown Times - - News - Holly Thomp­son

Bridgetown High School stu­dents have cre­ated car­bon sculp­tures of their faces to put on dis­play at the Ash­bil Com­mu­nity Gar­den.

Part of Car­bon­a­ture, the project is cre­ated and run by sculp­tor Kim Per­rier.

Stu­dent en­gage­ment co­or­di­na­tor Marie Per­rier said the idea to get in­volved with the project came from hu­man­i­ties and so­cial stud­ies teacher Kath­leen Holdsworth.

“She came up with this idea and ap­plied for fund­ing through the PALS Project last year,” she said.

“This year Kim ap­plied for fund­ing to do the Car­bon­a­ture project where peo­ple make moulds of them­selves out of car­bon and at­tach them to burnt rem­nants of the bush,” she said.

“He helped the stu­dents do the face moulds and then the kids cre­ated their sculp­tures out of car­bon.”

The stu­dents’ masks were at­tached to a totem pole which was burnt in a bon­fire ear­lier in the week at Ash­bil Com­mu­nity Gar­den.

“This is the sec­ond part of the PALS project and we’re adding last year’s and this year’s stu­dents face moulds onto the pole,” she said.
