06.03.2016 - Bow Arts project: working with glass at Manorfields School

Bow Arts invited me to work with a remarkable team of artists, curators and school children to create artworks in glass: they came to the studio in Deptford to sandblast tumblers and mirrors. In a second workshop in their school, we fused small pieces in a microwave and created larger panels that will now be permanently installed in the bright and airy stairwell. A celebration event in mid-March will allow the children to share their skills and achievements with pupils from other schools. They seem to really enjoy themselves – and so have I!
