Artist selected

 

 

Today the Year 5 pupils interviewed four artists for the Home Coming artwork commission. The year group had selected questions for each artist to find out how they would work and what they might create.

The four pupils  on the interview panel did an amazing job. All the artists were very impressed with the pupils.

At the end of the day, the pupils reported back to the rest of the year to make the final selection. We are delighted to announce that the sculptor Ian Etheridge has been commissioned to make our Home Coming artwork .

Ian works in wood, carving and constructing using traditional hand tools. He will work with us to develop the design for a relief panel. This will be on permanent display in the school hall.

Below are images of Ian’s studio, his workbench and the tools he uses.
