I’m looking forward to working with Y5 next week to create some fantastic Olympic sports figures in a style that will be an homage to Tony Cragg.

Working with the dual themes of ‘the Olympic Games’ and ‘eco’, we have a project here that beautifully fulfils both.

    These are absolutely brilliant, Tracey. The kids must be so proud of their achievements!

    One day, I will manage to make my commitments fit in with one of your exhibitions/courses!
