As part of a wider redevelopment scheme, parts of the playground have been reworked and replanted and a bandstand was built for the school’s brass band. To enhance the developments, the school was looking to create artwork with a musical theme. The project was supported by Hampshire County Council.

A design day was set up prior to workshops starting, where the children were guided by the artist, through a musical design session. Each child produced a drawing which influenced the final design.

3 days of workshops took place at the school to make the mosaic and the children learned the basic skills of mosaic and contributed to the final piece.

Over 2 days, the artists of Mosaic Art Ltd then installed the mosaic onto a playground wall facing the bandstand, complementing the new structures and planting.
