About me

I have over 20 years of experience and success in the creation of high quality artwork designed to withstand the rigours of the public space. Works have been in 3 dimensions, as well as ground and wall based relief. Over the years I have made new works for town centres, community gardens, public recreation grounds, local authority buildings, housing association developments as well as libraries, hospitals and health centres.

Bondgate Community Woodland, Workshops at Selby Primary Schools

Following on from the workshop held at Selby High School, workshops have now been held at Selby Abbey Primary School, Selby Community Primary School and Longman’s Hill Primary School. Involving children from years 3, 4 and 5 Ailsa worked with the pupils to design features for the Community Woodland. The children made pastel compositions based on natural forms. They then looked at the outline of the composed pastel drawing and drew the silhouette describing the form of their proposed sculpture.

In the afternoon the children modelled their sculptures in raku clay. Some lovely little pieces resulted from the children’s hard work. Ailsa is going to use these to inform the design of a number of wood carvings which will become permanent features in the community wood. In all 70 children took part in the primary school workshops.
