The Lighthouse, Poole
Creative Partnership Project Exhibition
8 July - 6 September 2010

The Creative Partnership Project is a collaborative project between Montacute School working with Langside School, Linwood School, Talbot Combined School, Poole Grammar School, Turlin Moor Community School, Sylvan School and the Pupil Referral Unit in Hamworthy.

The schools worked with a visual artist Olivia Keith who specialises in the process of gathering, making and using natural pigments. Every pupil at Montacute School worked in pairs with a pupil from another school to create a painted, woven and / or stitched canvas, experiencing new processes and forms. New friendships and links were forged through this experience and the end results are a delight to the eye.
