Firing Up - Blessed Thomas Holford

life size ceramic heads

portrait drawings in clay

shrunken heads 

Some pictures of the work made by pupils in year 11 at Blessed Thomas Holford Catholic College in Altrincham. As part of the Crafts Council 'Firing Up' programme I delivered several workshops at the school, where the pupils made portrait drawings in clay, shrunken heads and large ceramic heads as seen above. They worked really hard and made some great pieces which they should be proud of. 

The work is going to be exhibited at; Local Creations artists studios and galleries in Altrincham from 2nd - 30th June then at MMU in their 'Out of Schools' exhibition from 29th June - 9th July. 

Many thanks to the Crafts Council for the opportunity and the teachers, students and staff at BTH. A special thank you to ceramics technician Lucy Harvey, I couldn't have done it without her!!
