ABOVE: Children from All Saints designed and produced a colourful new mosaic for the school, thanks to funding from the Dove Valley branch of the Decorative & Fine Arts Society and Youlgrave School Association. The school engaged artist Peter Massey of Zantium Studios, based at Hopton near Wirksworth, to work with the children to develop a design. They were encouraged to choose symbols that reflected the creativity and supportive ethos of the close-knit church school, including the historic school bell and hands of friendship, candles and the chalice. All 65 pupils were involved in producing the artwork, which involved sticking over 12,500 tiny vitreous glass squares on a waterproof fibreglass board. The finished mosaic was erected permanently on the school gates and is both an illustration of the children’s creative abilities as well as an eye-catching advert for the school.
