|| Gaffer tape & Cardboard workshop || Part 1
We were asked to produce a three-dimensional artefact of an object that relates to our project. I chose to do a water bottle as water bottles are one of the main disposable products that end up polluting our coasts and affecting the environment of many animals at sea. Also, I was also interested in this as I would make it from up-cycled materials and hoped to make it resistant to water.
After spending over 6 hours on the screw-on, water-tight lid I was starting to realise that this task was a bit too ambitious for a 24-hour project. After working non-stop for 12 hours, I finally finished the bottle and was eager to test it out. However, as expected, the gaffer-tape did not hold the pressure of the water and it leaked into the cardboard making it soft and soggy.
I guess we learn from our mistakes.
