Jon the Potter is a regular artist in residence at Woodlands Infants School in Shirley, working with the two form entry year groups.
On the 18th October Jon made a timely trip to the school to help YR1 make autumn leaves for their impressive ceramic wall mural.
The children rolled out the clay tiles, shaped their leaf, added bugs, flowers and snails before painting their creations in russet browns and autumnal yellows and pinks.
Previously, the children had created an oak tree and with a fantastic ‘green-man’ aloft in the canopy. (above & below) The latest leafy tiles will be fired, glazed and mounted at the foot of the tree.
