We have been working with Spring Vale Primary School as part of their ‘Art Week’. The idea is to create a stained glass window for their entrance, which will incorporate their school name and logo, surrounded by eight fused glass panels. The school located in Wolverhampton has over 250 pupils with 8 classes from nursery up to year 6.
The project began with each pupil drawing a 20cm square artwork inspired by nature.
As part of their ‘Art Week’, I spent an enjoyable day showing and demonstrating my glass making techniques. The pupils were keen, interested and asked lots of good questions. We worked with each class talking about their artworks and what they would like to see in their window.
These artworks were then taken back to the studio and one was chosen to represent each class. The chosen design will then be made using the fusing techniques, using outline enamel, frits and mosaic gems.
