An internationally-acclaimed artist has been working alongside Nailsea School pupils to create a willow structure.
Serena De La Hay, who created the famous Willow Man sculpture near Bridgwater, helped to organise a competition for year seven students to develop a sculpture with the theme of growing into the guture.
The two winning designs, made by Jack Barnes and Lauren Hawkins, were then combined to develop the final piece.
Serena said: “It has been brilliant.
“It is a great way of engaging learners in a different way and was a really positive experience.”
