This is a badge bit (BB) that is part of the PEP curriculum.  Completing this BB is part of getting the straw badge in Community.

In this Badge Bit, you will make a piece of art that will be displayed publicly (accessible from off of your property, and for the benefit of those off of your property). It should be made with natural or re-purposed materials. This should take 8 Oddball points worth of work. It can be one giant project, or a series of smaller ones. It should take a skilled worker 8 hours to complete with all their materials already assembled--it will likely take you three times as long.

Here are some ideas:

It could be a large sculpture made from living material (like a willow fence) or very natural looking like the art in this thread:

They could be welded, like these (from this thread):

It could be painted with natural paints and protected under a shelter, or made with woodburning. It could also be small, like a little fairy house, which could be made with sticks and moss.

Or even cob, like they did at Copper Moonie Advanced Retreat Center:

Or even made with natural fiber, with some yarn bombing or knit graffitti

Check out this thread Share Your Art Here for more inspiration!

To qualify for this badge bit, you must
- Post a picture of your art in progress
- Post a picture of it completed and installed in its permanent location
- get at least 8 points according to oddball rules
And when my army is complete, I will rule the world! But, for now, I'm going to be happy with this tiny ad:
