Another glorious early autumn day and another idyllic primary school set in the depths of rural Herefordshire.
I’ve worked in the area on and off for the past ten years or so. It’s beautiful isolation has led to artists, writers and creative types settling in the area. Their offspring attend the local school, all 45 of them to learn in a relaxed and stimulating environment.
I’m always impressed at the quality of their artwork and the dexterity with which they work the clay, hardly surprising really, considering the children’s background and surroundings.
We spent the day making brightly coloured tiles for a new sign to welcome visitors at the entrance to the school.
