Naomi Vincent specializes in sculptures created from natural found materials like seeds, feathers, drift-wood, shells etc. to exquisite forms often with a fantasy element to them. Students produced some very beautiful and creative work under her guidance
Harvey: “The best bit was making housing out of all the different materials”
Lauren: “It was fun and different to what we have done before”
Chloe: “I really enjoyed today’s work as we started from scratch and had to use our imagination.”
Naomi Vincent, the artist, herself writes:
“A big thank you to the Helen Foundation for funding this inspirational workshop at Dawlish Community College last week. The students ,teachers and I enjoyed it enormously! The work produced was incredible. Such a wonderful opportunity for the students to be truly creative, to be guided by their own unique imaginations!
I have been inspired by what they achieved, they took this work to quite an unexpected level. They were all proud of their outcomes and the workshop itself was a hive of inspired creativity for all! A memorable and influential experience!”
