Art To Go: Recycled Straw Drawings with Rana Begum


You need straws and scissors. You can either take 5 to 7 straws from one of these colours It’s ideal to pick one colour but you can mix it up. And then you take the scissors and cut a slot on one end only. So I’m deciding to cut it at the end away from the bendy bit. You stretch the straw Put one finger and thumb on there on the bendy bit. And you bend the straw. And you just want to make sure you don’t bend it too much. You’ve got the short bit and the long bit You put the short bit into the slot that you’ve cut so the long bit so that it kind of goes in. Like that. You’ll notice as you’re adding it’s creating these kind of shapes. And then you want to connect those ends together And it naturally creates a shape So you can either have the shapes sitting Or, they can go up on the wall.
