With the help of our amazing artist in residence, Julia, the group worked tirelessly on some incredible artwork using still life and life drawings. These were themed around Victorian artefacts and characters in the book. These were put together as part of a collage which created our extraordinary book bench!
The bench was selected to go on display at The Embassy Tea Gallery and, there, the group also met the author Eleanor Updale whose book ‘Montmorency’ had also inspired another bench.
You can now see the fabulous bench for yourselves on display in our school opposite the library.
