Children at New Pasture Lane school got to grips with a range of arts and crafts as part of a sculpting workshop.

Schools, businesses and the wider community in East Yorkshire have been asked to make their mark on the follow-up to the award-winning Larkin With Toads event – Hull’s largest ever public art project.

Artists appointed to work on ideas for Swerving East have visited a number of places in the area trying to capture the essence of Hull and the East Riding to create a stunning trail of multiple sculptures.

Jason Taylor, a Derbyshire-based artist, visited New Pasture Primary School in Bridlington on Tuesday last week and Airmyn Primary School near Goole on Thursday 27 February.

Jason specialises in re-interpreting everyday objects to create public artworks that are interactive, enticing and entertaining.

He said: “I like contrasts so experiencing Hull as a city and then visiting a school in Bridlington I took the opportunity to go to Flamborough Head and that’s a dramatic coastline and very different from Hull.

“I’m constantly trying to develop ideas into simple forms for a sculpture. I have a lot more work to do but I need something tangible as I go through a project.”
