Featherbank Primary School have made links with artists both independently and through the Walk of ART – a local mum whose son attends Featherbank, Zoe Finlayson in collaboration with Early Years Teacher and Walk of ART organiser Lara Rule, worked with Reception to create paper crafts to be exhibited in the RSPCA.

Local artist Kate Park has tailored her skills to the Walk of Art and created a fantastic opportunity for the children to create glass art inspired by Anthony Gormley. You can see these glasses at Daniel Hayton Optician. Kate will also create a window exhibition of her own work.

The children have collaborated with Horsforth School to create clay sculptures for a sculpture trail in the High School’s grounds and sock sculptures which are being exhibited at HOPSCOTCH on New Road Side

Debra Ledda, HLTA at Featherbank and an artist in her own right, has worked with a class to explore their creativity using a variety of mediums – You can see her ‘hair’ inspired artwork at Auriole on Town Street.

The Perky Painter who is also exhibiting at Green Stop 19 has also kindly giuven her time to the children at Featherbank School and you can see their fantastically wild fruinimal designs at The Courtyard Cafe on New Road Side.

  1. The children of Featherbank have really enjoyed their participation in the Walk of Art and are excited to see their work in situ this weekend. I’ve even had one child write a letter to the Featherbank Bear to ask if he could go with her to see the art work this weekend! So, as you set off on the coloured routes, keep your eyes peeled for a furry Featherbanker!
