In the final artist-enagaged workshops of the ‘Our Creative Community‘ series run by Natalie Deane, artist Samantha Bryan came into Battyeford Primary School to work with pupils to create their own fairies.
The pupils identified Samantha as an artist from the Yorkshire Sculpture Park trip as someone they would like to work with to inspire the development of ‘Fairyfields’.
Samantha ran two sessions, one aimed at building the heads and faces of the fairies, and the second to build the bodies and costumes. Explore below to see how the sessions unfolded.
