This week workshops were held at Barton St. Peter’s C of E Primary School, Barton upon Humber in connection with the commission we are doing for The Ropewalk Gallery.
The children from year six worked on relief tiles which will become a permanent piece of artwork to be displayed in the school.
The children painted their tiles with a faux patina to resemble rusted metal.
Although the children all used exactly the same materials and paints every tile is individual. It is lovely how they have all turned out different colours as if at different stages of rusting. The completed tiles will be mounted on boards. These will be displayed at The Ropewalk for a short time before returning to the school where they will be on permanent display.
