All Hallows visit our Trail (now open 'til 3rd Oct pm) in the sunshine

Fiona went to Stourhead today to meet a large group of All Hallows Prep School Yr 8 students who were visiting our Scraptors' Sculpture Trail.  We are taking it down from next Tuesday 4th October - a slight extension to the 30th September end date - and it was one of the last chances to take pictures of our work there.  Everything glowed in the sunshine and Stourhead looked staggeringly beautiful.  The children explored the Trail with great enthusiasm and our Children's Quiz sheets seemed to help.  As they were studying metals in Science, learning about sustainability, studying mythology in Latin and some doing Surrealism/metamorphosis with Fiona in extra-curricular Art, the Trail provided plenty of relevant cross-curricular themes.

Sketches of the Sculptures

Paul made these drawings (above) of some of the sculptures on the trail.  Drawn on Wookey Hole paper they were for sale at the private view and most of them sold.  Below are a few of Fiona's drawings which were the basis for some of her sculptures on the Trail.

Children's Quiz for Stourhead Sculpture Trail

We created a Children's Quiz for the Stourhead Sculpture Trail (1-30 Sept), as the Trail is particularly suitable for children.  Copies of the Quiz are available at Stourhead on request, but below is a copy.  The quiz needs to be used in conjunction with our Scraptors leaflet - also available at Stourhead - as some of the answers can be found within our List of Work (also below):

A closer look...

The leaflets for our Sculpture Trail at Stourhead are now available on site, to help visitors discover the full range of sculptures on show.  Some pieces are quite hidden and require an observant eye.   Here are a selection of interesting, close up views - taken by Jack (vjultra), our Scraptors photographer, and Fiona.  If you visit, look out for these:
