The Why?s Man

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

S2 pupils in St Margaret Mary's Secondary, Glasgow created this Destiny boat, a take on a raft, with a little dinghy attached.

The pupils involved, were looking at George Wyllie's work in their English class, where his scul?tures were the stimulus for creative writing.

They visited the exhibition as part of the Glasgow Schools' Reception and met Scottish Makar, Liz Lochhead and poet, Donny O'Rourke there, further inspiration for their own creative writing.
