The Owl and the Pussycat is a classic poem by Edward Lear and the inspiration of many art pieces and paintings. We will create our own version of the fun piece, made from recycled paper and you can watch the progress.  We begin with some research and then use that inspiration create our own unique piece. The images of the cat, owl and 'pea-green' boat are great to work with!

The Owl and the Pussy-cat went to sea 

   In a beautiful pea-green boat, 

They took some honey, and plenty of money, 

   Wrapped up in a five-pound note. 

Here is the finished piece and below how it was made:
