My Moffat Ram

You might know that Moffat’s symbol is a ram, representing the history of the town’s wool trade. Last year the first Moffat Sheep Race took place, sheep and their knitted jockeys charging down the high street and one of my friends actually won some money in the event. (Check out ‘You Tube’ for some of the action)

Recently I was very lucky to be commissioned to create the prize for this year’s Moffat Sheep Race Raffle: a life sized paper ram. It took me nearly 4 days to make him but I finished him just in time.

Paper Ram

He has been named ‘Ramsay’ and is mostly made from chicken wire, newspaper and glue. The outside is entirely covered in parts of two old paperback books that were discarded library stock.
