Elveden Primary wanted a mosaic inspired by their forest location to brighten the wall outside their main entrance. The children worked on the bird designs in school ahead of the project start and arrived on the first day with plenty of ideas. They then worked in small groups creating the bird designs in glass tiles. They particularly enjoyed used the tile nippers to get the shapes they needed.
The birds were glued to the mosaic bases outdoors and the children took turns to work with the artists on the swirling lines of the mosaic background.
