    Pupils turn rubbish into art during workshop

    Client PR, Cornwall Sustainability Awards / No Comments

    Pupils from Torpoint Community College had the chance to turn waste into art at a special event held by a Liskeard-based eco artist.

    The year 8 and 9 pupils spent an afternoon with eco builder and artist, Trevor Gash, to create trophies from recycled material.

    Trevor, who has been commissioned to design and build the awards for this year’s Cornwall Sustainability Awards, wanted to show that material that could be classed as rubbish could be turned into something useful.

    Trevor Gash said: “I like using sustainable materials and I wanted to show the children how easy it was to change waste into something beautiful, like the trophy.

    “For me the idea of using recycled material was the most appropriate way to recognise the achievements of the Cornwall Sustainability Awards winners.”

    It is the second year that Trevor has been commissioned to produce the trophies for the awards, which is celebrating its tenth anniversary this year.

    Torpoint Community School teacher, Emma Thomas, said: “The important thing about this workshop is that we were working with a group of students and giving them opportunities, which they wouldn’t normally have in the classroom.

    “Having an artist who works with found objects and the environment around them, makes them understand that they can use basic things to create beautiful things.”

    The workshop was the brainchild of Cornwall Sustainability Awards’ organiser, Veryan Jones.

    Veryan said: “This year we worked closely with Cornwall Learning Education Business Partnership to launch the Cornwall Sustainability Awards for Schools.

    “We wanted to continue the link and thought a workshop with Trevor where the children had a chance to design and make trophies out of found and recycled material would be an educational and fun thing to do.

    “It was great that it was a success and that the children got a lot out of it.”
