In preparation for the 'Witches and Warlocks' sculpture trail, Jenny Clarke led two art
sessions for year 6 pupils at Ibstock Community School.
The pupils made their own interpretation of 'a witches nose' from different forms of
papier mache or clay. These were later enthusiastically decorated with paint, false hair,
and various unpleasant representations of warts, growths and drips.
The students were fantastic, persisting in solving the technical difficulties of producing
long pointy noses, and striving to make their finished results varied and original.
After the sessions Jenny assembled the work into 'The Witch Hunter's Trophy Board', which
stood proud in the middle of the village and was admired by the thousands of visitors to
the arts festival.
