Art and Three Dimensional Design pupils from Ipswich High School in Years 8 and 12 will be exhibiting work at Jimmy’s Farm Festival, a local celebration of art, agriculture and food. Sculptures made by Year 12 students, as part of their A Level in Three Dimensional Design will be exhibited in the vegetable garden at Jimmy’s Farm for the Summer and also on show during the festival, whereas willow animals crafted by Year 8 pupils will be on show in the festival’s grounds.
Head of Art at Ipswich High School, Imogen Vickers, commented, “Following a trip to Jimmy’s Farm to gather source material, and sketches to design various farm animals, Year 8 students worked with great enthusiasm to create a spectacular collection of life-size willow sculptures. They persevered with the challenges of construction and worked well collaboratively. We are looking forward to seeing them displayed at Jimmy’s Festival. Special thanks to Ms Looker and Ms Rice without whom it would not have been possible.”
Head of Three Dimensional Design at Ipswich High School, Joe Earley, commented, “It has been really exciting year for our Year 12 Design students who have had the opportunity to work with Jimmy’s Farm and produce a series of large structures for their summer festival. They have agreed to display their work in their grounds near to their vegetable patch throughout the summer holidays. All designs were inspired by a trip to Aldeburgh.”
Jimmy’s Farm Festival will be held on the 21st and 22nd July, at Jimmy’s Farm in Ipswich.
