Headteacher / Greatham School

Our beautiful 100th celebration stained glass window has become the centre of our school. The whole of the school community is immensely proud of it. It is so successful due to the hard work, dedication, creativity and wonderful patience with the children of the artist Helen Thomson. Those who share our hall have been so complimentary of the work that Helen has done with our children, staff and parents.

 

New to Fantasia Glass has been the development of educational workshops in schools and colleges. Every workshop is designed in collaboration with the school and is geared towards a number of curriculum areas. The result is that the children, staff and community having a wonderful hands on experience and a window or installation that the school can enjoy for decades to come.

Educational workshops have been carried out at Winchester College (A level art students), Greatham Primary School (ages 4-11) & Sunhill Infants (ages 4-7).

What Students Will Gain:

  • Practical creative skills such as colour theory, design, and traditional glass craft processes.
  • A beautiful handmade piece of artwork for the school, which everyone can be proud of.
  • Experience of team-work and working independently.

 

Curriculum Links:

Workshops can be created to incorporate many curriculum links, for example;

  • Science – how materials change.
  • History – Romans in Britain.
  • Art – colour and shape.
  • Maths – tessellations and measurements.

Greatham School wanted to share their experience with other Hampshire Schools and so provided a write-up of the whole project which Hampshire County Council published in the Autumn 2011 ‘Art News’.

Dogmersfield C of E Primary School, Hampshire

This large centennial window is centred around a tree, an oak being the symbol of the school. All children and staff participated in the design of the central panel and in making of the glass tiles used in the outer panels. Year 6 helped to ‘lead’ one panel as well. The school hall is used constantly and the window has a wonderful uplifting effect with the colours of the glass bouncing around the floor and walls.
