Glass Artist

A local glass artist came into St Mary’s to work with the staff and pupils. ¬†Each pupil designed and made a glass tile with an underwater theme. ¬†After creating a design, this was transferred onto special fabric using a light box. ¬†The designs were then cut out using craft knives and filled with glass frit. ¬†Stringers (glass tubing) and pieces of glass were added for effect, before the whole thing was fired in a kiln. ¬†The finished results were of a very high standard and were displayed in school for everyone to enjoy. ¬†A special thanks goes to the Helen Foundation who helped to make the day possible.¬† Please take a look at their website to find out more about this charity and the work it does with young people and the arts www.thehelenfoundation.org.uk ¬†
