Turn your household rubbish into awesome wildlife artworks…
To complement our Wildlife in the Red exhibition, artist Darrell Wakeham has created 3D models of a bee, a great bustard, a sawfish and a wildflower meadow – from little more than cardboard tubes. Why not get the family involved – and see what cool creatures or fantastic flowers you can make?
You can follow the simple instructions below. Or see Darrell’s demonstration videos on our YouTube channel.

Males great bustards perform spectacular courtship displays, gathering at a ‘lek’ or small display ground to try to impress the females.
The great bustard has a dignified slow walk but tends to run when disturbed, rather than fly.
The hen-bird on display at The Salisbury Museum was one of the last great bustards to be eaten in the town!
