Church Leigh Community Mosaic Project


School children from All Saints C E Primary, staff, parents and other members of the local community joined us yesterday to create the centrepiece mosaic feature for the new sensory garden at All Saints church.

Children  worked with me this week to refine the design for which a number of great ideas had already been proposed. We spent some time in the church looking closely at the magnificent stained glass windows. There are fine examples of original William Morris and Edward Burne Jones designs in this gem of a church, tucked away in rural Staffordshire. The colours and compositions are a real joy to discover.

The final design combines several of the children’s masterpieces and borrows from the formality of the strong geometric designs to be found in the floor tiles and elsewhere in the church.

A date will be arranged in the next couple of weeks for installation as soon as the landscape contractors are ready for us. More news then…………….
