Small steps & giant leaps

Children's footprints in clay at Castlemorton Primary School in WorcestershireCastlemorton Primary School in Worcestershire are entering a show garden at this years Spring Gardening Show at The Three Counties Showground Malvern.

It’s going to be a ‘space’ themed garden and the headteacher employed us to make clay foot prints of all the children currently at the school – one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind etc…

African masks

Clay masks made by YR2 at Leominster Infants school HerefordshireAfrican masks provided the inspiration for  when I visited Leominster Primary School to work with x90 YR2 students.

Very simple clay project working with slabs of rolled out clay and templates, but so much imagination and variation!

African connection

Mr Lewis presenting collaborative terracotta to school in Tanzania Here’s Stoke Prior Primary School headteacher Mr Lewis handing over an Eastnor Pottery collaborative pot to Singi’si Primary School Tanzania.

The pot was made in January when I visited Stoke Prior Primary.

Each member of YR6 attached a modelled self portrait onto a wet pot made infront of the whole school during assembly.

The pot was presented as a gift to the African school, twinned with the Herefordshire Primary.

Green man pottery

Ceramic wall panel made by children at Stoke Prior Primary School and Jon the Potter from Eastnor PotteryThe fabulous green man tile panel made by the children at Stoke Prior Primary School at the begining of term.

It’s going to look smashing mounted on the wall at the school.

Sunrise over Bradford

Jon the potter from Eastnor Pottery travelled to Bradford to work with children at Allerton Primary schoolSlightly out of my jurisdiction I know, but I spent three very busy days at the two form entry Allerton Primary School in West Yorkshire. I got to work with all of the 400 or so pupils making a variety of collaborative and individual works. Once all the creative offerings have been fired, I’ll take a few photos and publish them right here on this blog.
