Applying paper mache to the sculpture.
The girls spent time looking for items they had made at the workshops held at Y Kids, Bootle. Altogether the girls have had eight sessions (2 hours each) working with Faith, plus this studio time between January and April. To get the 'Spiral of Life' to this stage Faith has also spent another eight days working on it in her studio so far.

More figures added onto spiral, all linked together as the girls at REDI requested. Also including local references they chose (and sometimes supplied) such as the Beatles badge, Mickey Mouse for Disney shop, Superlambanana...
The word 'Liverpool' helps support the spiral.
The Spiral framework is now built. Faith begins to position the key pieces within the sculptural installation. A person, boat and 3D word were roughly placed on the spiral to judge the sculptures' height and scale. Then other figures were added and moved around to get it to look balanced.
