Longlevens Literature Festival

artist jon the potter worked with children and their parents at longleven junior school literature festival 2013Longlevens Junior School launched their very own Literature Festival in the last week of term. The event has been planned and organised by a committee of pupils who i’d met at the Cheltenham Literature festival in October. I was delighted to be invited to deliver a series of clay workshops as part of the pupil’s event at school.

I worked with Yr5 to make a splendid collaborative planter festooned with book characters and then later in the afternoon, families were encouraged to book in to short clay taster sessions.

Pottery funny bones

ahlberg inspired school creativity project led by artist potter jon williamsGreat to be back at Bishops Cleeve Primary School. They are committed to delivering a creative curriculum teaching all core subjects and skills (numeracy/literacy etc) through exciting topics.

They also have a talented art specialist teacher who spends a whole day off timetable inspiring the students. The results are amazing with corridors, halls and classrooms festooned with ambitious art works constructed from all kinds of different media.

I worked with Yr3 making skeleton tiles inspired by Janet & Allan Ahlberg well known Funny bones stories.
