Laura Ellen Bacon's Art Installation

We were extremely lucky to welcome artist, Laura Ellen Bacon, to work with Years 3 and 4, creating colourful, sweeping, nest-like webs between the trees in the playing fields. Children and adults were enthralled by the simple weaving of florist ribbons, taking the ribbons on a journey, casting shapes and patterns, and ultimately creating spaces for the children to interpret in any way they choose, whether as a hiding place, a performance space or a quiet sanctuary to capture their thoughts. Years 3 and 4, together with Laura Ellen Bacon, have created a wonderful niche to be enjoyed for years to come.
