So so busy towards the back end of the Summer term we didn’t get the chance to publish some of the amazing pottery projects we undertook with schools and early year’s settings, in and around the West Midlands. Here are a couple of examples:
King Edward VI School Aston in Birmingham held their Festival of Cultures event on the 3rd July 2015. We worked with groups of boys enabling them to realize some of their creative aspirations in clay.
Elmley Castle First School near Evesham Worcester invited Jon the Potter to work with the children to make a collaborative 3D clay sculpture based upon their natural environment and personal interests.
Ivington Primary School near Leominster worked collaboratively with Jon the Potter to make terracotta artwork to be installed in the school later on in the Summer term.
Class 1 made a Hungry caterpillar, class 2 made a dragon, class 3 a totem pole and class 4 greek myths and legends.
Here are the finished, fired terracotta results.
Sarah collaborated with Hartpury Primary School to make this excellent oak tree tile panel.
Just one of 24 coil pots made by YR3&4 at Burghill Primary School in Herefordshire. The ceramic masterpieces are going to be sold to the general public as part of the children’s enterprise studies at School.
Stravinsky’s The Firebird inspired this clay workshop at Cherry Orchard Primary School in Worcester. Each YR1 student made their own individual firebird as part of the Schools annual arts week.
