Paper Mache

paper-macheThe joy in using one’s own hands to create something beautiful out of waste material is incomparable. A large number of students work on paper mache. They create paper mache themselves by recycling old waste paper, old cloth and blades of glass through a ‘beater’ machine and ‘calendar machine’. They then create different models and art objects using the paper mache they have made themselves. These paper mache objects are then enhanced by various means like oil painting. The experience and joy of utilising waste material to create something useful helps students understand and appreciate the simplicity and beauty of nature.
