Every year since 2009, I have run a two day workshop with year seven pupils at The Latymer Grammar School in Edmonton. Two groups of thirty pupils take part, working on consecutive days constructing a sculpture (or sculptures)to then be shown in the central courtyard until the following year when it is replaced by a new one.
