Artist Visit (Willard Wigan)

We have had some special visitors in today.


DR Willard Wigan MBE creator of the world's smallest handmade sculptures. Guinness world Record holder for the smallest hand sculptor. And not forgetting, the very lovely and talented model makers John and Kelly. 


We enjoyed a whole school assembly, we asked lots of questions and marvelled at Willard's incredible work.

Willard worked with two year groups, year 5 and year 2, inspiring them to design their own small environments and demonstrating his tin foil skills! He even made me out of foil!


Following on from this we will be working on creating a room to go on display at Wollaton Hall in a new exhibition called 'Disappearing world'.

We are very lucky to have had this opportunity.  


You see more of his work on display at Wollaton Hall in an exhibition called 'Miniature Masterpieces'. its completely free.
