Woodside Primary Academy, Walthamstow, E17
We worked with 250 pupils from Years 1 and 2, aged 5-7 years old, on this project for the Forest Site of Woodside Primary Academy. The theme was forest wildlife as Epping Forest is so close. We made clay tiles with the children and then fired these, returning with boxes of mosaics and a scaled up design that the children mosaiced with us. The wall these mosaic went onto was a neglected wall full of cigarette butts and the pointing was all crumbling. Putting a community made mosaic onto it is such a transformation, and the mosaic sparkles and looks great 24/7, with access to all!
