Our mission was to create a new mural for the front entrance of The Zone, a popular family sports facility in Huddersfield. With the help of ceramicist Zoe Stainton we set to work ...

Working with 35 participants from Lydgate Special School (now Southgate School); the Bridgewood Trust and Enfield Down we created a series of sporting themed figures out of clay tiles.   We talked about our favourite sporting activities and came up with ideas for a series of abstract figures which would form our mural.  Everyone learned how to roll and cut the clay and create simple patterns decorated with slip.  The groups were so prolific that we ended up with more figures than we needed for our mural - so the extra figures are being installed at each of the participating organisations.

Former England and Huddersfield Giants rugby league player Eorl Crabtree kindly volunteered to unveil the mural in July 2017 which now has pride of place at The Zone.

Our thanks to Creative Minds, Kirklees Council and the One Community Foundation for funding for this ambitious project.
