  • The Tokyo 2020 Olympics are aiming to try and have a low carbon footprint, including medals made from e-waste and cardboard beds for athletes. It will be interesting to see what other ideas come out over the next few months. As well as these links there's more information on the sustainability page on the website.
  • Interesting article that might be useful inspiration for students when experimenting with materials. ChiaShan Lee is a textile artist who creates knitted garments sculptures and other items out of newspaper. She talks about her background and inspiration for her work and why she works with newspaper. The links are also worth clicking on to find out more about her work. 
  • Article on planned obsolescence is quite wordy so the article itself is probably more useful for A level but the article also has a link to a great short video that is really useful for other age groups.
