Clay horde at the Millennium Seed Bank in Wakehurst Place
9:45am Friday 26th July 2013 in News
A new artwork created by pupils from Burgess Hill opened this week.
A crowd of 1,350 small clay figures stand next to the Millennium Seed Bank at Wakehurst Place in a project called ‘School Fields for Mid- Sussex’ – inspired by artist Anthony Gormley’s Field installation.
Pupils aged between two and 19 from Woodlands Meed School and College, Oakmeeds Community College, Birchwood Grove Community Primary School, and London Meed Community Primary School were involved in the project.
The project was led by Jayne Rudge, a teacher at Woodlands Meed special school, and funded by the Mid Sussex Decorative and Fine Arts Society. Susan Allen, school and family co-ordinator at Wakehurst, said: “Our visitors will hopefully be as intrigued by the hard work and creativity of the children as we are.”
The figures will be on show at the Seed Bank until early September, when the figures will be distributed back to the schools.
