School visits and workshops

 mosaic whole

Project example: West Lavington School, Midhurst, West Sussex

With the school due to close in July 2008, staff and governors wanted to commemorate this historic event with an arts project.
We decided on a mosaic of the school, a picturesque Victorian building. The remaining 12 pupils at the school were given part of a picture of the school, and a 15cm wooden square with the design drawn onto it for them. They then reproduced their section of the school picture in glass and ceramic mosaic tiles, and grouted it on completion.
When the 12 squares were assembled, it created a mosaic of the whole school. Pupils were then able to take home an abstract mosaic that represented their own small piece of the school
