Day of Hirst 

This is a project that is based on something very traditional, the 'Day of the Dead' celebrations in Mexico and something very contemporary, Damien Hirst's Skull series.

A great way to get your young people comparing and contrasting, working with unsuual media and confronting beliefs and traditions that are in total contradiction to their own. Also,this is a project that hits right onto moral, cultural, religious and spiritual education.

This project works best over two days, although they do not have to be consecutive. The first day is spent discovering and designing and the second making and decorating. 

An exciting project with dramatic outcomes. To find out more or to book just get in touch on!
