Wire workshop for art students

Wire workshop for art students

ART students at Shiplake College enjoyed an all-day wire sculpture workshop with artist James Ort.

He is based at the Phoenix Gallery, near Thame, and works with clay, wire, paint and mixed-media.

The 10 pupils worked with wire, a wooden block for a base and cable ties to keep their sculpture together.

Art technician Julie Brooks said: “James is fantastic with the pupils and it’s great for them to see just how much can be achieved with a little patience and imagination.”
