Welcome to the underwater world. There are nets, lot’s of them! So the abyss has joined forces with kegworth public school to pull net’s out of the ocean and turn them into giant marine animal sculptures.
Our art teacher Ms Findlay got Kegworth involved with the abyss project by paddling over to a mysterious boat titled the abyss project. The Abyss Project is a school art program that turns waste shark netting into sculptures that have an important environmental message.
Ms Findley was so inspired by the project that she asked them to come to Kegworth. It wasn’t long before kegworth kids were making their own giant sculptures aiming to bring the water knowledge to kegworth!
Using plastic, ropes, netting and wire year three are making a massive turtle and year four are on track for finishing their enormous jellyfish.
Once stage two’s sculptures are finished they will be displayed on the courtyard for the public to see. So be on the lookout!
