Here's three drawings made by pupils from Stanhope Primary School when we visited the Ashes Quarry. These were made with pastels on a rainy and windy day which made a few interesting textures. The DVD is finished and the school has closed for the summer.
Next bit of schools work is down the road a bit with Wolsingham Primary. This time we're planning an animated film based on John Hillary's diary of his journey to New Zealand aboard the Westland in 1879. Mr. Hillary came from Tow Law a village up the hill from Wolsingham so some of the children will be from the same village.
Now I have to spend the summer planning my own contribution to the Semi Precious project in between visitors from Japan, South Africa and Australia - it's a busy year for travellers.
