The Pat Eastop Education Project
Up close and beyond
The Pat Eastop Education Project 2017, Up close and beyond, invited Yattendon Primary School year 5 and 6 pupils to create three silk banners from drawings and photographs taken on an investigation trip around the Yattendon Estate.
Resident Artist Sarah Moorcroft steered the pupils to look at the small details such as insects and plants, then think beyond in terms of architecture, local agriculture, farming, industry and employment. They were introduced to a new artistic medium, shown a design process and together created a lasting record on permanent display in the school.
