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!
I love the sign that Ark Schools very own artist Mr Rowles painted for my forging area!
