This year St. Giles Church is holding a Bell Festival and we have decorated some bells to add to the collections that will be on display over the next few weeks.
Class 1 and 2
Using circles of card and lots of sequins and glitter, the infants created and range of different sized bells by turning circles of card into cones, before being decorated.
Using clear acetate and glass paints, Class 3 created some beautiful stained glass window bells, which they hope will catch the light in the church.
Terracotta pots are wonderful, not just for putting plants in, but creating a myriad of other objects, and in this case it was bells. Using a range of bright colours and the obligatory Christmas glitter, Class 4 produced some beautiful designs.
If you would like to see the bells alongside others made by the local community, then why not pop down to St. Giles Church over the next few weeks? The festival starts this weekend and the church will be open for visitors. The church website has details of not only the Bell Festival, but all the Advent and Christmas events over the next few weeks.
