This week we are making origami boats to create our own miniature ship in a bottle. You can decorate your boat however you like, but you’ll need a small rectangle of paper to make your boat. The bottle I used was a spice jar but you can use whatever empty jar or bottle you have around.
I took inspiration for this from Yinka Shonibare’s giant ship in a bottle which you can see outside the National Maritime Museum in Greenwich. Take a look: https://www.rmg.co.uk/national-maritime-museum/must-see/grab-selfie-nelsons-ship-bottle
Don’t forget to send a picture of your ship in a bottle to email@example.com and put Art Blog in the subject line. Enjoy!
