Globe Primary School 3D Project, London
This was an almost three week extravaganza of 3D art workshops tailored to suit each class and with lots of materials the pupils and teachers hadn't used before. The results are now displayed around the school and are colourful, sculptural and exciting to look at.
"Working in a different mediums and with different years every day we have ended up with lots of beautiful work that I hope will inspire, interest, amuse and excite the kids for many years."

Nearly every class had an artist to look at and to emulate. The theme was the body.
The youngest children drew around their hands and cut them out of terracotta clay, pressing patterns and textures in. These were made into a mobile that now 'sings' when moved by a breeze.

Other young ones made figures inspired by Antony Gormley's Field for the British Isles. It was great to see them enjoying clay so much.

Alice Mara came in to teach Yr 6 how to throw and they all threw a pot. The next day they then decorated their pot with appendages and slips and scrafitto, inspired by Picasso's body pots.

"The children at Globe Primary School had a fantastic time throwing pots on my wheel. Most of them hadn't done it before, and their eyes lit up when they got their hands on the clay. Every child managed to produce a pot first time round, and it was lovely to see how they had added little extra clay hands and body parts onto the pots afterwards."

A huge figure inspired by Henry Moore:

"This year I volunteered at Globe School working with the children to create their version of Henry Moore's reclining figure. The children seemed to enjoy the challenges presented by the method of weaving plastic bags through chicken wire. A fiddly job! The final piece looked fantastic and even better it was made out of recycled materials."
