The Why?s Man

"My art is place specific and people specific." George Wyllie

P6 pupils created a whole flotilla of paper boats for the Last Launch and they made them in all sizes, going down to the very smallest which was no bigger than a finger-nail, and their enthusiasm for making paper boats continued, with one pupil, Vicky making a paper boat garland, and pupils making paper boat Christmas decorations for their Christmas tree.

The pupils also took part in the visit of the Cabinet Secretary, Michael Russell to the exhibition.
