On Thursday 19th April, the heritage Mosaic was finished and put up on the wall at Springfield Community Campus. It is the culmination of nearly two years of planning, design and making.
The mosaic has been made by pupils from Corsham’s Primary Schools, supported by the Corsham Area Board and the North Wilts Decorative and Fine Arts Society. Local artist Emma Leith masterminded the project but a lot of hard work has gone in from many others. You can view a short video produced by Corsham TV that tells you more about the making of the mosaic and the thinking behind it. It can be found at http://www.corshamtv.tv/playlist/wQrTk
The mosaic is situated on the wall between the café and the library and looks fantastic. if you have not had a chance to see it, do go and have a look. At the same time, you can also see another piece of artwork that was produced by Corsham’s young people and that is a peacock that has been put up on the tennis court fence.
The Brunel Shed are also hard at work restoring one of the old local mining trolleys and the plan is for this to be put on display at the entrance of the Campus. It is hoped that this will be completed during this summer and will add to the heritage art that was part of the original vision for Springfield.
