JHQ Commission Day 3
I had an amazing day making wire birds with Year 1 pupils, it was really lovely for me to work with the younger children on this project, not something I usually get time for when working in schools. Fantastic help was provided by Mrs C and Mr R and Yr 1 LSA so each child had 1:1 help. I love the way the children choose which wire they think is suitable and then even if they don’t think they are ‘big’ enough to do it, they get really stuck in and start creating! They amaze themselves and gain in confidence as they make, it makes me really enjoy teaching!
I owe this wire working skill to www.celia-smith.co.uk who worked with some school groups at Puthall Park Sculpture Show in 2004 and 2006. I think she has the best wire work sculptures out there and was a joy to watch working.
Take a peek at these marvellous creations from yesterday!
