The “Art Wall” at Bradgate Vale, Anstey, Leicestershire (Below)
We started in 2009 with a workshop at the local primary school, “Anstey Latimer”.
Myself, Paul Conneally and Jennifer Taylor went into the school on National Poetry Day 2009. Paul a recognised Japanese Haiku Master, introduced the year 7 children to Haiku Poetry. He told the story in such a way that the children were enthralled with the history of Haiku. Then they all had to go outside and write a poem. From the children’s poems the words for the wall were born. I videoed proceedings and Jenny Taylor took a photographic record.
The Art Wall is now finished and you can se it at Bradgate Vale in Anstey just off Link Rd. My thanks go to Paul Connealy (Haiku Poet) and Jennifer Taylor (Photography) and to Andy Langley at Art Fabrications and to Jelson Homes Ltd.
