This task is for the next two weeks:

Now that you have done some research into the Lewis Chessmen pieces it is time to have a go at making one. You can use anything you like for your sculpture (we’d use clay if we were in school). Look at the images again, re-consider which parts you liked and then have a go at sculpting a replica or your own design. If you are doing your own design you might want to sketch your ideas first. I have attached a salt dough recipe for you as this would be a good substitute for clay. If you have some paint at home, you could always paint it when it has dried. I look forward to seeing your creations.
Some of the Lewis Chessman pieces can be seen at the National Museum of Scotland in Edinburgh.  The links below takes you to the museum’s interactive pages where you can find information and activities about the Lewis Chess pieces.
