Junk Art Creations for Schools & Community Groups

Case Studies.......

Get a feel for the type of work I get involved in by looking through my case studies for inspiration.
I am lucky enough to be invited to help schools with such a wide variety of projects and I never know what I'm going to be asked to do next. So if you can't see what you're looking for, just get in touch.

Outdoor projects......

outdoor photos (24)

During the Spring of 2016 I worked at St Marys in Runcorn to transform their outdoor area, to provide a retreat space, incorporating outdoor art. We designed and decorated a shelter, made blankets and cushion covers, painted a rocking chair, made tyre benches and planters and adorned the fences and trees with fantastic junk art and handmade bird feeders.

Sometimes I work with colleagues as part of a collaborative Arts led project, usually involving a number of schools and in the case study below, approx 400 children over three days! My roll was to guide the children to produce 6 boards using bottle tops and all manner of collected junk items, encouraging them to work collectively and to experience new equipment and techniques.

Widnes Academy - Autumn 2016

I was invited to work with a small group of Year 5 children to transform a dull and uninspiring lean-to area in the playground. Built up against the red brick of this glorious victorian building the area, known as 'The Bistro', was suffering from the ravages of weather and age and needed a lot of TLC. The plan was to paint the old brick and all the wood work, brightening up the whole place and to create some amazing junk ark!

Case Study - Resisidential trip with Yr 4 to Tattenhall, Cheshire Oct 2013

In October 2013 I accompanied a group of Year 4 children on their trip to Tattenhall Residential facilities. I worked with the children for two days producing masks, shields, spears and tribal jewellery linking to their class theme of the rain forest.

All the artwork produced was designed to be worn by the children so that they could become part of the art itself. This meant they could get dressed up and have pictures taken in the woodland area of the school grounds - the nearest thing to a rainforest in Cheshire!
