Our Very Own Honiton Hippo

What an incredible creative journey our young artists have been on! Following a week of research trips, they spent a week in school with our resident artist, Alistair Lambert, and the wonderful Mrs Buss putting together the structure of our very own Honiton Hippo. 

From willow weaving, to making casts from the actual hippo bones found under the A30, to drilling, fastening, bending and manipulating a range of resources… our movable sculpture is really taking shape. 

Don’t forget, Earth Day is this Saturday coming- the 22nd April- why not join us as the hippo roams the streets of Honiton once more!

We will be starting at the school at 3pm, moving via All Hallows Museum, onto the Thelma Hulbert Gallery. All are welcome, we hope you can come and show your support!
