Acrylic Art for Remembrance Day at St Paul’s Sunbury

The students and staff of St Paul’s Catholic College in Sunbury wanted to mark Remembrance Day in a unique manner this year.  Inspired by the wonderful display created at the Tower of London a couple of years ago, Tom Collett, Head of Design and Technology, gave students a special DT project of creating poppies for placing in the gardens of the school as a mark of respect for the fallen. Along with the students, the staff had an opportunity create their own poppy for the project.

The poppies were made with aluminium stalks, laser-cut acrylic leaves, hand-cut acrylic petals and a 3D printed button. Students and staff could laser cut onto the leaf the name of someone close to them whom they would like to remember on this day. Once they were completed, the students placed their poppies in the gardens of St Paul’s, where the Remembrance Parade started on Sunday 12th November.  The display contains around 500 poppies in all.
