15 October 2014 – 20 October 2014
Artist, Trudi Lloyd Williams, has spent hundreds of hours sculpting jellyfish out of recycled plastic bottles. The resulting pieces are beautiful and delicate, just like the actual jellyfish which visit our shores each summer.
The exhibition highlights the incredible quantity of plastic bottles we use in our daily lives, so many of which we could quite easily do without. The masses of plastic bottles which are used in this exhibition were collected by school children and the public over last summer. The public have also been contributing to the project by reporting jellyfish sightings and making their own jellyfish sculptures.
Come to the exhibition to find out more about the jellyfish living in our seas and what we can do to reduce our plastic consumption. Visit the project website to see what jellyfish sightings have been recorded by people this year.
Jellytastic is a joint project between artist, Trudi Lloyd Williams, Sussex Wildlife Trust and Hampshire & Isle of Wight Wildlife Trust. The project is funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund, the National Aquarium Ltd, and the New Forest National Park Authority.
