On Tuesday 13th October ceramic artist and Aardman model maker Gill Bliss visits the Art Department to work with Year 7 in two half day ceramic workshops.
Since the beginning of the term Year 7 have been studying Lions. They went to visit Bristol Zoo to complete research and observational drawings in preparation for the workshop.
Gill worked with the pupils to produce ceramic lion heads. She showed them how to create a structure in clay and worked with them to produce a finished lion head. The Year 7 pupils learnt how to transfer their two dimensional drawings into a three dimensional form.
It was a productive but fun day for all!
