JHQ Commission Day Two
My tools and I have safely arrived at The Ark School JHQ Rheindahlen. We have a lovely working area set aside in the school playground using two old garages as dry workshop and storage space.
Day one went really well working with year six pupils on their lovely designed bird with a big scrolled head detail. The after school session involved a demo for the teachers so they could understand what their classes would be able to experience over the next two weeks.
Today I worked with year five on their Phoenix style bird, they made a cracking job of the copper repousse wings and forged body and tail parts. We had a visit from the Garrison H & S inspector too. After school was a group of six teachers and LSA staff who each made a copper or forged feather.
The play ground now has lovely chalk bird drawings all over it!
