KS3 Print in the Royal Pump Room Harrogate

8th June 2017

KS3 pupils had an amazing experience working with the artist, Helen Peyton.   She is the artist in residence at the Hepworth Gallery in Wakefield.  They had a tour of the museum and were especially interested in the mummy and the sulphur water.

The pupils used ideas from the exhibition of railway posters from the 1950’s.   They were taught how to mono print, used a proof press with the block prints and then experimented with polystyrene printing.

We are very grateful to the Pump Room for holding this workshop and to Helen who was a delight.

It was great to see the public enjoying watching our pupils learn and create such good art.  Well done to all the pupils.
