As part of their Craft and Design task, 6S and Ms Keenan visited the NCBI to see Terry Cartin in the Ceramics workshop. The students were undertaking research for their Ceramic tile wall panel group task. "Older" (!) visitors to our school may remember the wonderful ceramic and screen print wall panels displayed in the reception area. We look forward to seeing the completed work following assessment of the task next February.
Some of Terry's work may be seen at his webpage www.cartinceramics.ie/ . The site is under construction but gives some amazing examples of his work which you may have seen around Dublin.
