Dunhurst pupils unveil sculpture

As part of the Badley Weekend Celebrations, Dunhurst unveiled a sculpture designed by pupils in collaboration with Bedales Art teacher and local sculptor Andrew Cheese who was Dunhurst’s  ‘artist in residence’ during the last half of the summer term to help the pupils’ designs come to fruition. The sculpture featuring three figures in motion, was inspired by the Olympics and was designed by pupils in Blocks 1 and 2 with assistance from Andrew. They spent their Wednesday afternoon breaks modelling the sculpture in Wessex clay. Andrew completed the process over the holidays by casting the model into plaster, which then formed the base for the glass fibre sculpture finished in pewter. The sculpture now stands in the Dunhurst car park by the entrance to the school. Read more. View photos.
