Light, symmetry and reflection workshop.

In maths we had looked at symmetry, so this workshop was perfect for developing understanding. We made infinity boxes (mirrored boxes) and then made half pictures to stick at the edges, so the pictured were reflected. This was tricky when trying to place things in the corners. Glo sticks were added to the boxes, so the light reflected on and on.

Afterwards the artists took us into the walled gardens to look at the light installations, and to make boats with glo sticks in them to float on the pond.
We went back a few weeks later to look at the light installations when it was darker, they are amazing.
