Huddersfield Literature Festival

I’ve just finished doing a bit of work for the Literature Festival which was a nice little insight into a world i honestly don’t know much about. It’s 50 years since the publication of ‘The Iron Man’ by Ted Hughes, so i brought the figure i made ten years ago with six different schools to the launch party along with the recent commission ‘Mr Dragon’. Then on saturday afternoon i led a childrens sculpture workshop in Huddersfield Library where we all made iron men from various bits of cardboard and plastic then used tape to finish them off – good fun as always.
