  1. This is a wonderful project. I can’t wait to visit Greenwich and see the windows in action.

    Here’s a link to a story I’ve written for News Shopper on Advent Windows:

    Looks really nice – how did you do it?

    Hi, thank you 🙂

    It is built entirely out of paper,tape and staples and rests on a simple timber frame. Friends and family, and students from St.Saviours and St.Olaves school have been helping me to make paper cones over the past month,I then collected and bunched these together over a template to create what you can see now.
    I used a circle cutter to make holes in the paper screen through which the cones are balanced. It is very precarious and the sellotape will lose its tack and the structure will loosen as time goes on, it may disorganise itself, but I think that thats probably part of the charm for me.
    It took 5 days to set up with the help of an excellent friend and we tested the best takeaways Greenwich had to offer 🙂
